Since 1970, there has been an overall decline in wildlife populations in the order of 52%. These are often not complete extinctions, but large declines in the numbers of animals in each species, as well as habitat loss. The Living Planet: The State of the World's Wildlife presents a tremendous opportunity, before it is too late to rescue many species. This book documents the present state of wildlife on a global scale, using a taxonomic approach, and serving as a one stop place for people involved in conservation to be able to find out what is in decline, and the success stories that have occurred to bring back species from the brink of extinction - primarily due to conservation management techniques - as models for what we might achieve in the future.. 420 p.
