DescriptionPANDA RESCUE takes readers into the remote bamboo forests of China, where scientists can spend years without ever seeing the elusive animal. It looks inside one of the largest breeding centres in China and reveals some controversial attempts to save the species. And it explains how our fascination with captive pandas has become a threat of its own. Tracing the colourful history of the black-and-white bear, Panda Rescue shows why many conservationists remain hopeful about the animal's future. AUTHOR: Dan Bortolotti is a writer and editor whose work has appeared in many magazines, including Equinox, Canadian Geographic, and OWL. He is the author of Exploring Saturn. SELLING POINTS: The Firefly Animal Rescue Series identifies endangered and threatened species and what is being done to protect them. Combining lively, accessible text and stunning colour photographs, each book provides a detailed overview of the species, describing its characteristics, behaviour, habits, physiology and more.
