These books to help children save endangered species, are designed to instil a love of all creatures, both here and abroad. Ecological writer Satish Kumar once wrote that if you do not know Nature, you cannot love her. By the end of this reading feast, your children will be all ready to save our own native endangered wildlife (like hedgehogs and dormice) along with toothy tigers and hilarious hippos!

Sir David Attenborough is also a supporter of the work done by the Red List.

Bee houses often are not good, as they get infested with mites. See native wildlife posts to know natural food to grow, rather than have them rely on us. If planting to attract wildlife, make your garden safe for pets to know plants, flowers, trees and other items to avoid.
