Facing Extinction tells the story of the world's rarest birds, focusing on the 200 .

Facing Extinction tells the story of the world's rarest birds, focusing on the 200 or so species listed by the IUCN as Critically Endangered. These range from species like New Zealand's remarkable Kakapo, subject to perhaps the most intensive conservation management of any species, to birds about which virtually nothing is known, such as the Royal Cinclodes. By: Paul F Donald(Author), Nigel J Collar(Author), Stuart J Marsden(Author), Deborah J Pain(Author). I’ve read many books about endangered birds, and Facing Extinction: The World’s Rarest Birds and the Race to Save Them is the best that I’ve seen at explaining how and why birds become rare.

Almost two hundred species of birds have become extinct in the past 400 years, and a similar number today are in imminent danger of following them. The world's conservationists are leading the fight to prevent the demise of these remaining critically endangered birds, with a fair degree of success. This new book examines the process and issues concerning extinction - how and why it happens and what can be done about it. Whilst man is to blame for many of the causes, such as persecution and habitat loss, species have become extinct on a regular basis since life began.

Almost two hundred species of birds have become extinct in the past 400 years, and a similar number today are in imminent danger of following them. The world's conservationists are leading the fight to prevent the demise of these remaining critically endangered birds, with a fair degree of success. This new book examines the process and issues concerning extinction - how and why it happens and what can be done about it. Whilst man is to blame for many of the causes, such as persecution and habitat loss, species have become extinct on a regular basis since life began. After several thought-provoking introductory chapters, the book showcases about 20 species on the brink of extinction from around the world and describes the work that is being undertaken to save them. Some are success stories, but a few are not. This is a subject close to the hearts of all birders and ornithologists and this book, written by a team of leading conservationists, will strike a chord in most of them.
