Desert animals are built specifically for a harsh, arid environment. As global temperatures rise, however, Earth's deserts are changing, affecting desert animals' ability to survive. Readers will see examples of desert animals that are on the spectrum of threatened species, and an example of a animal species that tragically succumbed to extinction. The volume ends with a success story and information about how readers can help fight global warming. Manageable text is paired with charts, maps, and close-up photographs of desert animals to help readers get the most out of this important conservation topic.
