The book highlights our planet’s ingress to the Sixth Mass Extinction—a period conceptualized as the Anthropocene. Bringing together seventeen of the most susceptible non-human species falling into the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) categories of Critically Endangered, Endangered, Vulnerable, and Near Threatened, this volume inspires appreciation about the natural world, highlights the concept of species extinction caused by humankind, and examines how in the march towards ‘progress’, we have overlooked the rights of other species to flourish alongside us.
