Before the arrival of settlers, the Great Northern Plain sprawled across the centre of the continent and rivalled the African savannah for wildlife, with herds of bison and pronghorn antelope numbering in the millions. It was also the home for species of birds and animals that lived nowhere else. Today that range is threatened by human incursion and in some areas there are only pockets of unadulterated prairie grassland left, small islands of a unique environment.

Millions of tons of plastic slip into oceans every year. Some floats and travels slowly with the currents, endangering the health of marine animals. The rest is hardly visible but is far more dangerous. Tiny bits of plastic sprinkle the ocean's surface or mix into the sandy seafloor and beaches. It ends up inside birds, fish, and other animals, harming them-and ultimately humans. Experts struggle with fear and hope as they work to stop the flood of plastic threatening living organisms ...

Biodiversity is the foundation for maintaining the balance between all living things. When species begin dying out, it upsets this delicate balance and can cause ecological tragedies. Earth's rainforests are homes to vast biodiversity but are also one of Earth's most threatened habitats. Animals risk losing their homes through pollution and deforestation. This book highlights at-risk animal and plant species and discusses ways readers can lessen their carbon footprint.
