Endangered, Extinct and on the Brink: Young scientists at work

Suitable for primary and lower secondary.

Evolution and extinction are a natural fact of life. The extraordinary diversity of life on our planet could not exist without them, and individual species are constantly evolving or becoming extinct. But are we on the brink of something more serious? Many scientists believe we are at the beginning of a new mass extinction and this time the cause isn’t natural – it’s us. Endangered, Extinct and on the Brink introduces middle and upper primary students to the great problems facing our environment today by examining extinction events through time.
