Tarkine the Tassie tiger: Don't expire - light your fire! by David Daniel | PB
Tarkine the Tasmanian tiger declares that there is no future in extinction – and he should know!
He tells us that the modern world has lost half its species, an amazing rate of
nearly 200 plant, insect, bird and mammal species a day! That’s 1000 times the natural rate.
Tarkine explains how this has happened and shows us the importance of habitat, ecosystems, biodiversity, catchments and more, and the alternatives to our destructive ways. He points out what we shouldn't do and what we should do to preserve the wonderful gift of our natural environment.
Tarkine tells his story to two young children … our future generation, but what he says is for everyone – young and old and from any background.
