About the Book
Urban sprawl, wasteful water use, increasingly ferocious wildlife, changing weather patterns, chronic political infighting. These are but a few of the problems facing animal and plant species throughout the United States and the world. One law, the Endangered Species Act, serves as the primary safety net for protecting wildlife driven to the brink. Can it save us from an extinction crisis? In Endangered, award-winning journalist Mitch Tobin investigates the threats to our planet and offers solutions to potential disaster. Tobin reports from the front lines of Endangered Species Act battles, using America's hottest, driest, fastest-growing region the Southwest as a snapshot of the complex and myriad issues confronting imperiled species. These firsthand accounts, eloquently and thoughtfully told, explain the challenges of protecting the natural world and give hope for ecosystems thrown off balance.
