She most recently presented Winterwatch alongside Chris Packham, is the founder of The Self-Isolating Bird Club on Twitter, and co-founder of Wildlife Rebellion.This book takes just 20 of these amazing creatures, from the 'celebrities' of the red list - the tigers, the northern white rhino, the kakapo - to the lesser-known, and sometimes lesser loved ones, and paints a portrait of them, their world, and the people trying to protect them. Also included is one plant species, an orchid, making me aware of the practice of plant poaching, which is making many species of plant similarly in danger of extinction. We also use them to help detect unauthorized access or activity that violate our terms of service, as well as to analyze site traffic and performance for our own site improvement efforts. Drawing from the testimony of scientists, conservationists and rangers, this beautiful and important volume explores the countless extraordinary species facing extinction and maps a hopeful path to changing our perception and appreciation of the natural world.

Megan does seem to try not to paint too bleak a picture, but I’m afraid I was left feeling that despite the courageous work of the many individuals that she introduces us to in the book, who are fighting to preserve the featured species, it is all ultimately going to prove to be too little, too late. Beautifully written, capturing the wonder and personality of each creature, big and small perfectly. Become a member and you can be an invaluable part of our mission to conserve birds of prey while enjoying as many visits to the Hawk Conservancy Trust as you like – plus many other benefits! A really brilliant insight into an array of endangered species with a fantastic mix of facts and real life experiences.An Atlas of Endangered Species shows us that the battle is on for their survival - and we all have a part to play. Not only is Atlas of Endangered Species a fascinating, immersive exploration of iconic and overlooked species, but most importantly it's a powerful, passionate plea for a wilder future alongside nature. Much like her presenting style, Megan McCubbin's writing has an effortless appeal to a diverse audience, from the curious child to the most seasoned of conservationists. Although the book was excellent I found myself feeling a bit doom and gloom after reading it, especially as I finished it a day after the UK PM pushing back on some of the UK green commitments. Most well-known for presenting the BAFTA award-winning BBC Springwatch series and Animal Park , Megan is a passionate science communicator and biodiversity activist.
