 Saving the planet might sound like an impossible job, but it’s not too late for you to make a change.

In this beautifully illustrated book, children (and adults!) can learn about twelve different habitats – gardens, hedgerows, heathlands, woodlands, highlands, wetlands, the coastline, freshwater, seas and oceans, savannahs, jungles and mountains – and how we can all help to protect them in fun, creative and practical ways. From creating hedgehog tunnels in your own back garden, to switching off lights to help protect the polar bears in the Arctic, this book will help you make a real difference to our world.
