Description Description These soothing stories teach kids about the projects that are rewilding the world with animals and saving our environment in the process.
What is rewilding? It means bringing wildlife back to the places it once thrived. Humans have been polluting the Earth and damaging wildlife for many centuries. Now, it’s time to let our world heal. We can do this by helping some of the animals that have been left behind.
In this book you'll discover twenty stories about rewilding projects from across the globe that are bringing animals back to the wild. And when these animals are rewilded, nature starts to heal itself!
The rewilded animals include:
  • The plucky Eurasian beaver, reintroduced to a river in Devon
  • The magnificent tiger, saved with animal dung stoves in Nepal
  • The peaceful water buffalo, donated to a Ukrainian restoration project
  • The adorable lynx, released from captivity in the Iberian Peninsula
  • The majestic humpback whale, banned from being hunted and now increasing in numbers along Australia’s coastline

These inspirational stories show how animals contribute to ecosystems and make positive impacts around the world.
Today, more than 40,000 unique species are threatened with extinction. It’s never been more important to teach kids about conservation. This  beautifully illustrated book makes learning about the environment engaging and accessible. It supports a healthy curiosity and interest in animals the natural world and its positive, hopeful message makes it perfect for children at bedtime.
