Around the world, roads and highways have cut through natural spaces. As a result, wild animals are cut off from the resources they need to survive. Make Way for Animals!: A World of Wildlife Crossings explores the creative solutions engineers and wildlife biologists have found to save both animal and human lives and help preserve ecosystems.
Today author Meeg Pincus joins us to share her inspiration for this nonfiction picture book, her research process, and more!
The Wild West may be a little wilder than you think. For thousands of years, jaguars roamed portions of Arizona, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Louisiana, and sometimes ventured into Colorado, Oklahoma, Virginia, and North Carolina. But today, jaguars are mostly absent from the United States. American Jaguar: Big Cats, Biogeography, and Human Borders by wildlife biologist Elizabeth Webb takes a deep dive into the jaguar’s current predicament and highlights the work of field scientists searching for ways to restore their populations.
