Lost Species

With Jess French

This is an event from the 2019 edition

Step into an incredible lost world and marvel at the strange and magnificent creatures that once roamed our Earth with zoologist and vet Dr Jess French (CBBC).

Norwich favourite Dr Jess French, zoologist and vet discusses her latest book Lost Species. She will be joined by illustrator Daniel Long for some exciting live drawing fun.

From the awe-inspiring woolly mammoth and the ferocious Spinosaurus to the shy Chinese river dolphin and incredibly rare Pinta Island tortoise ‘Lonesome George’, meet 35 extinct species and discover how these creatures came under threat. Featuring additional information on ‘Lazarus species’ (animals declared extinct but which, amazingly, have been rediscovered in the wild), and mass extinction events, including the part we are playing in endangering our wildlife, the book shows young readers that extinction is not simply a part of ancient history – it is happening right now across the planet – but that if we all make some small changes to our lifestyles, our wonderful species can be saved.
