With the insatiable curiosity and conversational prose that have made her a best-selling author, Goodall - along with Cincinnati Zoo Director Thane Maynard - shares fascinating survival stories about the American crocodile, the California condor, the black-footed ferret, and more - all formerly endangered species and species once on the verge of extinction whose populations are now being regenerated.
Interweaving her own first-hand experiences in the field with the compelling research of premier scientists, Goodall illuminates the heroic efforts of dedicated environmentalists and the truly critical need to protect the habitats of these beloved species.
At once a celebration of the animal kingdom and a passionate call to arms, Hope for Animals and Their World presents an uplifting, hopeful message for the future of animal-human coexistence.

"Goodall is no Pollyanna about species reclamation - she acknowledges that there have been more losses than gains - but these accounts of conservation success are inspirational." (Publishers Weekly)
