Marking a new departure for Bradt, this full colour, large format title builds on the brand's reputation for ethical travel and conservation, presenting a compendium of 100 of the world's most endangered animals. The book is inspired by the Zoological Society of London, the umbrella organisation for London and Whipsnade Zoos, and its much-acclaimed EDGE Evolutionarily Distinct and Geographically Endangered programme.
