Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Above all No More Endlings is a book of wonder (about amazing species with which we share this planet) and of hope...This is a book for everyone: to be enjoyed and be inspired by daily. Delightful and uplifting. -THOMAS E. LOVEJOY, National Geographic Fellow

... Creatively weaving together the uniqueness of each species with our own human connection to the natural world, No More Endlings is a journey that engages, teaches, and shows us why we must truly protect what we love. -JEAN-MICHEL COUSTEAU, Ocean Futures Society

No More Endlings shares the stories of some real endangered species heroes...Through its mixture of adventure, heart-warming moments, and science, No More Endlings should encourage us all to action.- RUSSELL MITTERMEIER, Conservation International

Animals go extinct all the time. Allison's animals are examples of just what we lose everyday on our wonderful planet. Animals that will never return. This book asks what we can do and how we can change in the future. Read it. Be the change. -DOMINIC MONAGHAN, Actor & Host, Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan

Better than any book I know, No More Endlings shows that there are nationals in various countries that do fine research and are devoted to conservation...each account celebrates the natural world and encourages us to protect it. -GEORGE SCHALLER, Panthera & Wildlife Conservation Society

... As a source of reference material [No More Endlings] will, I am sure, be turned to by people all over the world...It is personal and it is important and we would all do well to pay attention.-WILL TRAVERS, Born Free Foundation

These dispatches from the frontline of conservation introduce some amazing animals but also the real-life heroes trying to save them. Their stories, filled with adventure, science and humour are enough to inspire us all into action. -LUCY COOKE, TV presenter & National Geographic Explorer

...The stories of how these advocates bonded to some of the world's most amazing others will touch you, too, and fire your determination to work for no more endlings, right along with them. -CANDICE GAUKEL ANDREWS, author of Travel Wild Wisconsin

... [No More Endlings] explores the uniqueness of each species, our personal connection with the natural world, and something beyond what the facts can teach, something that cannot quite be understood, but will be missed if it is lost forever. -RHETT BUTLER, Mongabay.com

Meet the Author

ALLISON HEGAN's appreciation for the natural world was founded at an early age on an overdose of public television's program Nature and family trips to America's national parks. She later solidified her interest in conservation through volunteering at the Los Angeles Zoo, the Wildlife Waystation and studying terrestrial and marine ecosystems abroad at the University of Queensland in Australia. While not working on No More Endlings, she has written several articles dealing with topics such as species genetic diversity, animal self-medication behavior, exotic species issues and more.

Allison graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in People-Environment Geography and certificates in environmental studies and African studies. Originally from Pasadena, California, she most recently worked for the Wildlife Conservation Society in New York City, and currently is web designer while travelling with her husband, a travel nurse. Through her writing and work, Allison hopes to continue to share her passion and inspire others.
