Can people save black robins from extinction in New Zealand? Will puppet shows and posters in the rainforests of Mexico protect the colorful quetzal? Can painted turkey feathers keep hornbills from being wiped out in Malaysia? Will decoys and sound recordings fool a handsome seabird into nesting again on Devil’s Slide Rock off the coast of California?

There are many kinds of heroes in our world. In these six multicultural stories you'll learn about young people and grownups fighting against the odds to save wild birds -- and about the birds themselves, some on the brink of extinction. color photography
