Everywhere you look, the extinction crisis is in the headlines, but the stories in Wild Hope prove that the news about the natural world isn’t all doom and gloom. From the students at New York City’s Harbor School who are replanting oyster beds to the software engineer who created a national database of wildlife emergency medical centers, Wild Hope tells the stories of individuals who are making a difference in the welfare of wildlife. We want our nation’s youth to be inspired by these stories and become engaged with nature, perhaps even be motivated to choose a career in conservation biology, wildlife medicine or environmental science. So, we are offering copies of Wild Hope free of charge to high school science classes. If you are a secondary school science teacher interested in pre-ordering copies, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We also have a digital flip book available.
