Was it too late to save the American alligator? For millions of years, this amazing creature had lived peacefully in North America. Yet by the 1960s, years of hunting, pollution, and land encroachment had pushed the animal to the brink of extinction. Would people find a way to help the American alligator survive? In American Alligators: Freshwater Survivors, children relive the inspiring and heroic efforts of people who stepped in to save this remarkable creature when all seemed lost. Through this true tale of wildlife survival, children discover the bold and creative ideas that Americans and their government have used to protect and care for the country’s endangered wildlife. Full-color photographs and a habitat map enrich this heartfelt story of conservationism and courage.
