Rate this:
Wild Science profiles ten world-renowned animal scientists, revealing how they decided to become researchers, the stories behind their fascinating jobs, and scientific information about the animals they study. Containing beautiful full-color photos and black-and-white line drawings, Wild Science engages both reluctant young readers and enthusiastic young scientists with its tales of adventure from wildlife experts. The animals featured include endangered Vancouver Island marmots, grizzly bears, manatees, polar bears, and sea otters, among others. Through these pages the reader can spend a night tracking bats on a narrow ridge high in the Chiricahua Mountains of Arizona, trek along the beaches of Costa Rica in the footsteps of huge and powerful leatherback turtles, and free stranded whales on the beaches of coastal Newfoundland. The settings range from the farthest regions of eastern Canada to Vancouver Island, from the Arctic to Arizona, and from Florida to California. A glossary and a list of resources covering books, websites, and more are included.
