Birds of prey (raptors) have been admired by humans for thousands of years. Despite their incredible hunting attributes (powerful eyesight, ultra-sensitive hearing, sharp talons) many birds of prey species are now seriously endangered or threatened: condors, eagles, falcons, harriers, hawks, ospreys, owls. This book, illustrated with 50 spectacular colour photographs, addresses the general environmental issues and challenges in preserving a future for endangered birds of prey around the world. The "Firefly Animal Rescue" series promotes endangered and threatened species and what is being done to protect them. Each book introduces readers to a featured animal, explains the threats it is facing, and explores efforts by conservationists and organisations to protect it.
