Rescuing Animals from Disasters

Each title looks at the people involved and techniques used to rescue animals from natural and man-made disasters around the world. Specific and recent disasters are highlighted, such as Hurricane Katrina, the Cedar Fire in San Diego, CA, the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, and the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Photographs of oil-covered pelicans, mud-caked puppies, and orphaned forest animals will inform as well as touch the hearts of readers. Though losses are documented, the focus is on the heroic rescuers, happy reunions, and grateful survivors. Recommended.

Rescuing Animals from Disasters

This series recounts specific disasters and the rescue efforts made to save the animals affected, using accessible… language, brief personal stories, and evocative (sometimes cute [baby turtles], sometimes disturbing [severely burned cows]) photographs. Though successes are highlighted, harsh realities are not ignored (especially in Oil Spills). Well-known examples of the specific types of disasters are appended.

Rescuing Animals from Disasters

After disasters, many animals face certain death unless humans intervene. This series offers true accounts of rescue attempts; some fail, many are successful. Each story is fast-paced and thrilling. The text is in boxes at the tops of the pages, while captioned photos fill the bottoms. The stories can be heart-wrenching; e.g., Earthquakes explains that a panda was crushed to death during a quake and the cover of Floods shows a pig fighting to keep its head above water. Each title ends with one page of famous disasters and rescues and another explaining which animals are at risk from the catastrophes. Important, current introductions for young environmentalists and animal lovers.
