Description

Seeking the beautiful, the breathtaking and the bizarre, Charlie Elder goes in search of Britain's rarest and most endangered animals. Travelling the length and breadth of the UK, and meeting up with experts along the way, he tracks down secretive and scarce mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects living on the brink, ranging from the iconic Scottish wildcat and surreal spiny seahorse to the striking golden oriole, outlandish wart-biter cricket and sinister black rat. This title celebrates the diversity on our doorstep and highlights the natural treasures we risk losing.
