MYP - Science.
Endangered Planet is a timely examination of the health of the ecosytems that support life on Earth. Today, humans influence every habitat in the world. From the local activities of tribes in New Guinea to the global impact of ever-expanding cities, natural cycles have been altered to meet human demands. Now the Earth is at risk as never before - dozens of species are wiped out each year, coasts and oceans are fouled with massive spills of oil, grasslands and forests are destroyed to feed the insatiable appetite of modern agriculture. With time running out, this book is an essential reminder of our responsibilities to safeguard our fragile home.
