Alligator and Crocodile Rescue

by Trish Snyder

From the Book jacket: Loathed for their dining habits and adored for their skins, alligators and crocodiles were hunted almost to extinction. But thanks to some creative conservation efforts, their status has improved dramatically. Even so, they are still at risk: eight species remain on the endangered list, and some hover on the edge of extinction. In Alligator and Crocodile Rescue, you'll meet people from around the world who are helping to ensure a future for these living links to dinosaurs. Trish Snyder has been an editor at Today's Parent, Chatelaine and House and Home. An award-winning writer, her articles have appeared in Toronto Life, Canadian Business, MoneySense and Glow. Alligator and Crocodile Rescue is her first book.
