Animals in Peril: Images of Our Friends Who May Be Leaving Us
"In producing this book of images of some of my favorite animals, I hope to draw attention to their plight, and perhaps contribute in some small way to their survival. These wonderful creatures deserve and need our help if they are able to remain with us, and I am indeed grateful to all the people who dedicate their time and effort in this regard." — Tom Knapp
"Animals in Peril is an important book. It is a necessary book. And it is, even today, a timely book. Although it may be little in size, consisting of thirty original etchings by the artist, it is large in its purpose and goal. It preserves images of some of the planet's many endangered animals and it is a call to action for concerned citizens worldwide." — Jon Looney, Preface
Each etching is accompanied by biographical information of the animal illustrated. Among the animals included are Giant Panda, Galapagos Tortoise, Gavial, and Salt Water Crocodile.
