Animals on the Edge is the most up-to-date visual survey of our world’s rare and endangered mammals, featuring stunning photographs of 60 terrestrial mammals on the latest IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Chris Weston and Art Wolfe are among the finest wildlife photographers at work today, and passionate advocates of wildlife conservation. The International Union for Conservation of Nature or IUCN is the global authority on the status of animal and plant species worldwide. The book’s general introduction defines the scope of the project. Chapters are organized geographically: The Americas; Europe & North Asia; Africa; East, West & South Asia; Southeast Asia & Oceania. Photo captions detail the conservation status of each species and the threats it faces. ‘On the Frontline’ features in each chapter offer compelling in-depth reporting on the successes, failures and challenges of particular conservation hotspots around the globe. A final section, ‘On Assignment: A Photographer’s Journal’, is a vivid, behind-the-scenes account of some of Chris Weston’s adventures along the way.

Animals on the Edge combines spectacular imagery with a wealth of factual information, engaging narrative, and an impassioned message.
