Wildlife heroes share stories in new book

The stories of wildlife’s greatest heroes fill the chapters of "Saving Endangered Species," released through Johns Hopkins University Press and the Indianapolis Prize, the world’s leading award for animal conservation, which is presented every other year by the Indianapolis Zoological Society.

At a time when wildlife conservation is at a critical juncture, 12 preeminent conservation scientists — Winners of the Indianapolis Prize— and public advocates come together as authors to tell of their journeys to protect threatened species around the globe. The book is edited by Dr. Robert Shumaker, president of The Indianapolis Zoo, with a foreword by actor and environmentalist Harrison Ford. 

“Saving Endangered Species” covers important and timely issues including human-wildlife conflict, habitat loss and the illegal wildlife trade, while inspiring readers and illustrating that hope is not lost.  

The book is available in hardcover and electronic formats here:

Proceeds directly support the Indianapolis Prize.
