Did you know that blue whales are the largest animals in the world? Or that sea otters wash their paws after every meal? The world is filled with millions of animal species, and all of them are unique and special. Many are on the path to extinction.
To mark the publication of her new book, Don’t Let Them Disappear: 12 Endangered Species Across the Globe, Chelsea Clinton introduces a selection of endangered animals that she writes about, sharing what makes them special—and what threatens them. She takes a look at rhinos, tigers, whales, pandas, and other species, and provides helpful tips on what we all can do to help prevent these animals from disappearing from our world.
Clinton discusses what inspired her to write about endangered animals and her passion for writing for young audiences with Anna Rothschild, the host of the Washington Post's science video series Anna’s Science Magic Show Hooray!
Clinton is the author of several children’s books, including the best-selling She Persisted. Don’t Let Them Disappear (Philomel Books) is available for sale and signing.
