Why are species disappearing and what can we do to help? This series will explore the stories of different endangered species and the scientists who study them. By learning more about human effects on wildlife, we can also learn how we can all help to protect animals all over the world. We’ll meet some of the threatened and endangered animals that we have in our parks, and learn from our experts what we can do to save them.
