At a time when animal species are becoming extinct on every continent, a time when we are confronted with bad news about the environment nearly every day, Jane Goodall, one of the world’s most renowned scientists, brings us inspiring news about the future of the animal kingdom. With the insatiable curiosity and conversational prose that have made her a bestselling author, Goodall—along with Cincinnati Zoo director Thane Maynard—shares fascinating survival stories about the American Crocodile, the California Condor, the Black-Footed Ferret, and more: all formerly endangered species and species once on the verge of extinction whose populations are now being regenerated.

Interweaving her own firsthand experiences in the field with the compelling research of premier scientists, Goodall illuminates the heroic efforts of dedicated environmentalists and the truly critical need to protect the habitats of these beloved species. At once a celebration of the animal kingdom and a passionate call to arms, Hope for Animals and Their World presents an uplifting, hopeful message for the future of animal-human coexistence.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Alexa | 2/16/2014

    " If there were half as many essays in this book, I would be a fan. But there are too many stories of saving endangered animals that are so similar, they starry to blur which is why I didn't make it through the whole book. Jane does the audio herself which is a treat. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Meghan | 2/7/2014

    " This isn't one you'll want to read cover-to-cover. Nevertheless, it has a lot of great recovery stories and gives an interesting look into Goodall's later years traveling the world to meet all sorts of researchers in the field. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Shelley | 2/5/2014

    " Important information, but for each animal she discusses it's really the same story as to why they are on the brink of extinction, so I found it a bit boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Christina | 2/1/2014

    " Wanted to like this more. It's very long, and focused more on facts than narrative stories so that when read straight through the sections start to sound too similar. There's a nice appendix in the back noting places you can see the animals mentioned in the book. The audio book is read by Jane Goodall. "
