Summary

The stories of 35 inspirational activists from around the world who have taken positive action to protect various habitats or animals.

This book takes you on a breathtaking tour of our planet - from towering mountaintops, through grasslands, jungles, rivers, deserts, polar wildernesses and into the blue ocean - to discover the incredible variety of life that calls it home. Along the way, read the stories of 35 inspiring Earth Shakers - children and adults, from tree-planters to scientists, from all around the world - who have taken action to protect it.
With lots of practical tips throughout and handy resources on how to find out more, every budding young activist will be inspired to make a change for a better future.
Includes a special foreword from Lee Durrell MBE, of Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.
