About Wildlife Crossings of Hope:

Wildlife Crossing of Hope book cover. illustrations of layers of animals moving across the cover. Top from bottom are people, pangolins, swallows, lizards, Malayan tapir, elephants, eels, and ants.

We all need safe places to live and safe paths to travel. Animals, too. 

Meet the people who are stitching the planet's habitats back together.

Let's explore together how scientists, engineers, and lots of everyday people are working to make sure that the wildlife so essential to Earth's health and beauty continues to freely move through the landscapes, waterways, and skylines of this richly inhabited planet. 

Combining first-person reporting with research and stunning two-color art from illustrator Jamie Green, Wildlife Crossings of Hope takes a personal, in-depth look at wildlife crossings, corridor projects, and dam removal efforts around the world, from an underpass for elephants in Kenya to the Un-Dam the Klamath movement in the U.S. to the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor, which extends from southern Mexico to Panama. 

Above all, this is a book that invites young people to think of themselves and wildlife as part of one community that urgently needs restoration and protection. Back matter includes actions for kids to take, a complete listing of the scientific names of all creatures discussed, source notes, a bibliography, an index, and more. 

Books for a Better Earth(TM) are designed to inspire children to become active, knowledgeable participants in caring for the planet they live on.

About Teddi Lynn Chichester:

Teddi Lynn Chichester grew up in California's fertile Central Valley, land of farms, tule fog, and country western music. She spent many childhood summers hanging out with banana slugs and the world's tallest trees in Northern California's coast redwood forests, where her father worked as a State Parks Interpreter. She teaches writing and literature at the University of California, Los Angeles, and loves spending time with her sons Alexey and Nicolai, her orange tabby Benjamin, and her horse Mischa. When she's not grading papers or reading books about the natural world, she volunteers at the nursery where native plants for the world's largest wildlife crossing await the bridge's completion. Teddi lives very close to Griffith Park, and though she never met the beloved mountain lion P-22 during her frequent hikes there, she still feels his presence all around.
