A stunning collection of paintings depicting the world's most threatened habitats and the animals that live there. In the tradition of his other award-winning titles for children, Vanishing Habitats is the ultimate pairing of Robert Bateman's role as artist and as passionate ecological advocate.

His tireless quest to study and protect the world's biodiversity has taken him to every continent and inspired art that has found its way into homes everywhere. Here, his breathtaking artwork and moving commentary will introduce readers to the Bowhead Whale, imperilled by pollution and climate change in the Bering Strait; the Mountain Gorillas of the Congo Basin, facing extinction due to uncontrolled deforestation; and so many more.

A true celebration of the beauty and perseverance of endangered animals, and a cautionary tale of our relationship with the natural world, this book will leave readers with a deep appreciation and concern for the abundance of life that surrounds them.

Lots of animals are dying because their habitats are disappearing and they have no where to live. Everyone should read this book to help protect the animals.
