Joel Sartore's quest to photograph all the animal species under human care celebrates its 15th year with this glorious and heartwrenching collection of photographs. The animals featured in these pages are either destined for extinction or already extinct in the wild but still alive today, thanks to dedication of a heroic group comitted to their continued survival. From the majestic Sumatran rhinoceros to the tiny Salt Creek tiger beetle, Sartore's photographs bring us eye to eye with the kaleidoscopic diversity of shapes, colors, personalities, and attitudes of the animal world. In these vivid pages, Sartore singles out the species most likely to disappear in the next decades, as well as some that have already been lost. Alongside these indelible images are the words of scientists and conservationists who are working to protect and restore populations of endangered species. With Sartore's distinctive portrait photography, he invites us to look closer--and to care more.

"I can never unsee these faces, and I believe I am a better person because of it. Thank you, Joel Sartore, for using your passion and talent to give these animals a voice." -Amy's Booket List "There are nearly 300 portraits in this book. They are gorgeous. They will break your heart. But this book is SO IMPORTANT." -Bookapotamus "Any lover of nature or ardent conservationist would adore this book, its photos, and its message." -JulzReads "This book is both beautiful and heart rending. All of the animals in it are either already extinct in the wild or heading towards extinction. Just think about that. The man taking all of these magnificent pictures wants to at least make a record of each one's existence before it falls from the earth." -Broken Teepee "It's a very sad thing, to read through this book, and see all the critters on the Endangered list, and on the Extinction lists." -The Pages In-Between "I'm going to tell you that the photos in this book are absolutely stunning and you will find yourself compulsively turning the pages." -Stranded in Chaos "Joel Sartore has captured the soul of each animal on a simple black or white background, forcing the reader to look into the eyes of many of the animals that our actions are helping to decimate." -Stephanie's Book Reviews
