Wildlife everywhere – big, small, popular or shunned – plays a vital ecological role in nature, and is crucial to our own existence. Yet worldwide, thousands of species are losing habitats essential to their survival, taken from the wild for sale to the global pet industry, unnecessarily killed out of fear or ignorance, and slaughtered for body parts used in dubious medical practices. Every year, species after species is being driven to extinction, which raises the big question: how to halt this situation?

The answer surely lies in making people aware of the value and wonders of the wild world around them. They are then more likely to want to protect and conserve it for the benefit and enjoyment offuture generations. This richly illustrated book contains nearly 90 profiles of life-forms found throughout most of lndia, ranging from popular and attractive ones like squirrels, birds and butterflies, to less popular or shunned ones like ants, centipedes and scorpions, plus a few to be appreciated at a distance, like crocodiles, leopards and venomous snakes.

Written in an informal manner for laymen with occasional touches of light humour, the text is largely free of scientific or zoological terminology. It will appeal to curious readers from all walks of life, expand their horizons, and awaken a greater wonder and appreciation of the fascinating natural world that surrounds us.
