Back from the Brink - Join the War against Animal Extinction
If you thought animal extinction was an issue in national parks or the wild, think again.
There’s an animal extinction apocalypse happening in your neighborhood. Urban areas are home to 46% of endangered animals and cities like London, New York and Mumbai are each home to dozens of endangered species. This thought-provoking book by a teenager shows that we need not be mute bystanders to this wave of extinction but can play an active role in this war to bring these animals, and our world, back from the brink of ecological collapse.
Did you know:
Shutting off all lights at your home at night can save ten birds a year?
Taking one stray cat off the streets can save almost 3000 endangered animals over five years?
Adopting a 25% vegetarian diet can save 70 marine animals a year?
Filled with other such everyday steps you can take in your home and communities and supplemented with inspiring case studies of how other communities have come together to transform their ecosystems, this book will provoke and inspire you to join in this struggle to bring countless animals, and our world, back from the brink.
About the Author: Aaditya Sengupta Dhar was born in Singapore, lived in Bangkok and now Mumbai. This helps him appreciate how similar values are across boundaries. He believes building bridges and tapping into shared values will create a kinder, better world.
Excelling in school is important, however, he believes being a good person is more important than just being a good student. Inspired by the plight of migrant workers during COVID, he wrote an eBook called Underdogs to raise awareness about underprivileged children, donating all sale proceeds to Save The Children India.
He loves reading, inspiring him to create his own stories. His first novel, Secret Tails, was published in 2019. His second book, Underdogs, in 2020. A short story of his about bridging prejudices across boundaries won 1st Prize in the 2021 Global Storytelling Festival organised by The Melton Foundation. His next book, Legend of the Broken Blade, a fantasy novel, is coming later in 2022. Outside of school and writing, he is an avid Cricket fan and holds a Black Belt in Karate.
He would like to help create a better tomorrow through his writing, ideas and by championing causes he is passionate about. He’s only 13, but as his favourite author, J.R.R Tolkien said, “Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.”
