Red Alert!

By Catherine Barr

15 endangered species in six different habitats need your help to survive!

Pick a place. Choose a creature. Discover its story and the danger it faces. Then find out how to help it survive. 15 wild and wonderful creatures, all on the IUCN Red List, need our help - this important book is interactive, engaging and informative, and will inspire children to save their planet! Red Alert! is inspired and endorsed by the 'Red List' database maintained by International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Currently the list includes over 70,000 species known to be at risk, but it grows larger all the time.

  • “Absolutely beautiful and perfectly targeted for its audience. We are delighted to be involved.” - Dr Craig Hilton-Taylor, Head of Red List Unit, IUCN
  • The IUCN Red List is supported by Sir David Attenborough.
