Many of the animals and insects that we love most are living under a death sentence. By the end of a century, half of earth's species will disappear. Science and nature journalist Jon Mooallem sharpens our sense of what can be done by zooming in for close-ups on three endangered species. In each case, he shows how conservationists, some of them relatively untrained, have rigged environments or moved species to make them mutually hospitable. The three creatures that he's chosen as case studies (the polar bear, the metalwork butterfly, and the whooping crane) all have intrinsic appeal as do the good-hearted and imaginative humans intent on saving them.
