Rewilding means returning animals or plants to places where they used to live. In this book, acclaimed conservation biologist and science communicator David A. Steen introduces children to the scientists determined to turn back the hands of time to create a greener future. Read about awe-inspiring rewilding projects, including the wolves that returned to Yellowstone National Park and dramatically improved the ecosystem, the beavers reintroduced to their old territories to build dams to stop them flooding and the Galapagos giant tortoises who beat the odds to survive extinction and return to their island homeThroughout the heartwarming true stories, beautifully illustrated by award-winning artist Chiara Fedele, children will learn how different species evolved to live side by side and will see what it takes to be a conservation scientist. They might even be inspired to become a wildlife activist themselves! By the end of the book kids will be left with a key message: it's not too late to fix the planet.
