Why are some animals naturally rare and others so abundant? From the Himalayan slopes of Bhutan to the most isolated mountain ranges of New Guinea, Dinerstein takes us to some of the least-traveled places on the planet to catch a glimpse of unique animals, and shares stories of these species to give readers a deep appreciation of their ecological importance and the urgency of protecting all types of life-- the uncommon and abundant alike.

The author, distinguished scientist at the World Wildlife Fund, describes many research expeditions to WWF's priority places (biodiverse hotspots) in Asia, South America, Africa and North America. He details what constitutes rarity and what causes it with examples of many wondrous creatures. He also makes a convincing case for the need for conservation of these beautiful, unique places and what we can do to help.
