Endangered Animals – Presentations

Below are four books which we produced.

In each are our Endangered Animals research projects.

We worked extremely hard on our projects, and as you can see each is different and unique. We hope you enjoy reading our books. We hope you understand just how important it is to maintain the delicate balance which exists in the animal kingdom. Each and every day there are animals which become vulnerable and which run the risk of becoming endangered and eventually extinct.

Can we afford to allow this to happen?

Each animal is unique and special and has an important role to play in the balance of their individual ecosystems. Lack of balance in any ecosystem, eventually leads to lack of balance in the human ecosystem. Each animal is vital in maintaining balance in its habitat and in its food chain, and ultimately in the very existence of the diverse ecosystems on our beautiful planet. 

We have been moved by the depth of damage which man has created on the earth. Each of us has the responsibility of maintaining peace and order, not least of all in the diverse habitats of our planet.
