(Bijna) Verdwenen Dieren
The British artist Beatrice Forshall portrays the wondrous lives of eighty special animal and plant species that are threatened with extinction. The book of (almost) disappeared animals is an ode to the earth and a call to defend all the beauty that deserves our protection. We see dancing cranes, read about a clever sea slug that builds an iron house deep underwater and marvel at these creatures that have survived for hundreds of thousands of years, but now face an uncertain future.
From plankton, koala and camel to orca, coral and hawksbill turtle: Forshall shows nature in all its overwhelming beauty, but also makes clear what we lose if we don't change something quickly. Our earth is warming up, air and water pollution are taking their toll and humans are causing irreversible changes in the living environment of animals and plants. A million species are threatened, and since 1970, populations of fish, birds, mammals, amphibians and reptiles have declined by an average of 68 percent. That's why this book is a love letter and fire letter in one.
