Was it too late to save the black-footed ferret? Thousands of these furry creatures had once lived on the great plains of North America. Yet by the 1980s, millions of prairie dogs—the ferret’s main source of food—had been killed. Without them, the ferret was suddenly pushed to the brink of extinction. Would people find a way to help this endangered animal survive? In Black-footed Ferrets: Back from the Brink, 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.
