TV personality and conservationist Jeff Corwin has released a new book called “100 Heartbeats” covering the world’s most endangered species — and what chance, if any, we have of saving them. “From the forests slipping away beneath the stealthy paws of the Florida panther, to the giant panda’s plight to climb ever higher in the mountains of China in search of sustenance, to the brutal poaching tactics that have devastated Africa’s rhinoceros and elephant populations, Corwin takes readers on a global tour to witness firsthand the critical state of our natural world,” says the book’s jacket.

Sounds uplifting, right? Thankfully, it’s not all doom and gloom as Corwin also shares stories of battles fought and won to protect species once on the brink. Said Bill McKibben of the book, “On a warming world, conservation and wildlife protection is an increasingly desperate battle. Here are the stories of some real heroes, who should move us all to real action.”
