Our planet is criss-crossed by a network of ancient pathways, reflecting the journeys of millions of animal species in search of food, water, safety and mates.

But human development is blocking these vital ‘ribbons of life’. Animal habitats are shrinking into isolated and unconnected patches of nature.

Track the journeys of seven amazing animals. Discover why they are in trouble, follow their journeys and find out how scientists and campaigners across the world are creating ‘wildlife corridors’ to keep animals safe and on the move.

Discover…

Elephant crossings in India • Hedgehog highways in the UK • ‘Spoonie’ flyways in Asia • Fish ladders in Germany • Gibbon canopy bridges in the People’s Republic of China • Bear bridges in Canada • Cougar crossings in the USA

MEDIA REVIEWS

“Informative, beautiful and hopeful!” - Ian Eagleton

"In this book you’ll track the journeys of seven amazing animals, and learn how people around the world are creating special channels – wildlife corridors – to keep them safe and help them on their way." - The Week Junior Book Club

"Wildlife books for children tend to fall into one of two camps: fun, fluffy, fauna fact-files that fail to address the elephant in the room (that almost everything is endangered) or so hectoring and climate-change heavy that they make bedtimes feel like COP28. This one strikes the perfect balance between the two, with richly illustrated pages exploring seven solutions that are helping animals and humans to coexist, from elephant corridors in India and fish ladders in Germany to canopy bridges reconnecting gibbon habitats in China. It offers a glimmer of hope." - The Times

"This book looks at some examples of how disruption to Wildlife Crossings is being ameliorated by taking positive action... A book to raise awareness among children who one hopes, will find ways to support the vital work being done. Highly recommended for primary school collections." - Jill Bennett, Red Reading Hub
