A modern must-read for anyone interested in protecting our earth and its incredible wildlife, Gone tells fascinating stories of 11 extraordinary extinct animals from around the world.
This is a mindful call to conserve what we have now before it is lost forever.
Learn what made these species unique; what their habits and habitats were; who discovered (or killed) them; what remains of them; and where we can view what survives of them today.
Beautifully illustrated, this is not a scientific book––it is a life affirming, quirky and informative read that everyone will enjoy. 
·       The Great Auk, flightless bird of the North Atlantic coastlines
·       The Spectacled Cormorant, seabird of the Komandorski Islands in the Bering Sea
·       Steller’s Sea Cow, herbivorous mammal of the Bering Sea
·       Upland Moa, flightless bird of New Zealand
·       Huia, a New Zealand wattlebird
·       South Island Kōkako, forest bird of New Zealand

·       Dodo, flightless bird of Mauritius
·       Schomburgk’s Deer, hoofed mammal of the plains of central Thailand
·       Ivell’s Sea Anemone, worm-like anemone of Widewater Lagoon in West Sussex, England
With striking illustrations that reimagine what these forgotten creatures would have looked like, and humorous insights from a dynamic nature expert, this book not only resurrects the animals of yesterday, but tells of the consequences that our actions today will have on the species of tomorrow.
Michael Blencowe is a naturalist and writer currently living in South East England where he works for a number of conservation organizations. He has always been drawn to the mystery and beauty of wildlife and spends time searching for bears, nightjars, scorpions, and moths all over the world.
