Two new books on indigenous peoples and conservation have been added to naturalist Michael Chinery's exciting series Secrets of the Rainforest. Each colorful book shows us the wonderful array of plants and animals that live in the lush wildernesses of the world's tropical rainforests. Acting as the earth's lungs, the rainforests are of vital importance to the planet and to the many indigenous peoples who have traditionally lived in harmony with their lush surroundings. Children will learn how conservationists are struggling to preserve these last remaining wildernesses for future generations.Logging, mining, and settlements are destroying the earth's rainforests and driving animals from their once lush habitats. This fascinating book looks at the effect of 'civilization' on the forests, deforestation, pollution, the threat to wildlife, and what we are doing about it. Topics include:
-- trees and timber
-- foods of the forest
-- forest pharmacy
-- rainforests and climate
-- forest clearance
-- rescuing the hunters
