Description

Enraptured with raptors? Love lions? Protective of pelicans? Rob Laidlaw's latest book has something for everyone. Having exposed the cruel treatment of animals in zoos and the entertainment industry with his previous two books, Rob Laidlaw sets out in Saving Lives and Changing Hearts to show a more positive side of the human-animal relationship: animal sanctuaries. From a donkey sanctuary in Canada to a bear rescue centre in China, this book examines numerous efforts around the world to rescue and care for animals in need. Discover what makes a great sanctuary and what makes a phoney one. Understand what animals really need to be happy and healthy. Explore the fates of dancing bears, research chimps and discarded pets once they are no longer considered useful. Read about amazing rescue operations from around the world. Learn how to start your own sanctuary! Find out how to make a difference.
