Description

The mighty Amazon rainforest holds many secrets and remains a wilderness wreathed in mystery and folklore. From the ‘El Dorado’ fabled city of gold sought by the Spanish conquistadores 500 years ago to the strange and precise antics of leaf-cutter ants, there is much to wonder at and learn.

Yet the Amazon continues to be destroyed by agribusiness and unscrupulous prospectors. Many of the products routinely consumed in the global North originate from such unsustainable practices. Today’s children – the future decision-makers and consumers of tomorrow – as well as adults all around the world need to understand this, as well as the unique value and fragility of the Amazon in order to make the right decisions to preserve what are truly the ‘lungs of the Earth’.

The conservation scientist authors have decades of field experience in the jungles of South America. Their unique, personal knowledge of wild animals and the secrets of the tropical forest is revealed in these short stories, brought to life by the humour of cartoons.

A perfect learning resource for nature-loving kids and adults, as well as the perfect classroom book for science teachers. Get your copy today!
