Survival
Saving Endangered Migratory Species
Stanley Johnson and Robert Vagg

published 2010 • 10 1/2" x 12 1/ • 168 pages • full-color photos throughout
ISBN 9781566568197 • hardback • $50.00

Produced in conjunction with a UN agency, this book is both an informative warning against the threat facing many species and a stunning celebration of their beauty

Our ruthless exploitation of the natural world has already driven many wild animals to the brink of extinction. Among the most threatened are many migratory species, whether avian, terrestrial or marine. Due to the fact that in most cases these species cross national boundaries, the need for international conservation efforts is particularly urgent. Albatrosses and petrels, migratory water-birds and birds of prey; sharks, whales, dolphins and other marine mammals; West African forest elephants, gorillas and desert antelopes-these are just some of the key species that are the subject of this meticulously researched book, which is supported by maps and illustrated with world-class wildlife photography.

Stanley Johnson has been a trustee of the Earthwatch Institute and is currently a trustee of the Gorilla Organization and an Ambassador for the United Nations Convention on Migratory Species. He has worked in the European Commission as Head of the Prevention of Pollution division and as Director of Energy Policy. In 1984, he was awarded the Greenpeace Prize for Outstanding Services to the Environment and the RSPCA Richard Martin award for services to animal welfare. He has had ten books published on environmental issues.

He rejoined UNEP/CMS in 2006 working in the Outreach and Information branch and edited the CMS Encyclopedia. He lives in Bonn.
