In the 1800s, Florida panthers thrived in the southeastern United States, but by the mid 1900s, there were very few of the animals left. When biologists like Mark Lotz realized that wildlife refuges would only do so much to save this endangered species, they got to work. Follow along in this graphic adventure based on a true story of how biologists saved the unhealthy population for a Florida panther comeback. Then, learn more about Florida panthers and other cats in danger.

SLJ Review of Saving Animals from the Brink

A new take on science comics that feature groups of conservationists and activists working to help save animals from extinction. This series is tied together with the shared thread of animals at risk and their connection to the creation of the Endangered Species Act. Each title addresses the critical importance of the selected species, using key terms like “apex predator” and “keystone species” to impress the importance of the animals upon readers. While the work done by the conservationists is inspirational, there is some dancing around issues, as each narrative begins at the onset of colonialism or expansionism without really addressing the issue in a decolonized way. Also, A Chemical Nightmare leaves out the major factor in DDT’s removal–Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring and its public impact, which was inspired by Charles Broley’s research. VERDICT: Using science comics and simplified narratives, this series aims to discuss topical issues of extinction and conservation with reluctant readers.
