Should leave children in no doubt that conservation is for everyone, wherever they’re from.
After reviewing this book, I definitely want to be a conservationist. I am going to take this book to school and share with my class because I think they will like the facts and doing the activities to help save the planet.

Although the book covers conservationists from across the world, its chief message is that everyone can make a difference, even in a small way – from building bee hotels to putting a bell on the collar of a pet cat. The book is full of examples on how to protect wildlife.
