Summary

A good leader leads by example, and leaders in the conservation movement are especially hands on. The 10-title Conservation Heroes set focuses on famous and inspirational luminaries, both historical and contemporary, who became champions for protecting the natural world. Readers learn about the leaders' lives, influences, and work and gain a greater understanding of Earth, oceans, and animals—and the importance of each to our lives—in the process. Each fully illustrated book presents the methods and accomplishments of a particular prominent conservationist, providing more than 100 pages of useable information for middle and high school students. Science concepts and terms are presented in clear language, giving readers the background they need to understand the conservation issues. Each volume comes complete with sidebars, further resources and Web sites, a section providing resources to readers who want to get involved in similar conservation issues, a glossary, and an index.
