Endangered and Threatened Wildlife of New Jersey Book
Endangered and Threatened Wildlife of New Jersey, a richly illustrated, 336-page color guide to the state's 73 endangered and threatened wildlife species, is now available. Authored by Bruce E. Beans and Dr. Larry Niles of the Endangered and Nongame Species program, the book is divided into seven sections: mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects, and bivalves (mussels). Each animal is discussed individually including its ecology, distribution, and population status. Sixty-four detailed maps and more than one hundred spectacular color photos provide readers with a rare glimpse of these seldom-seen species.
Endangered and Threatened Wildlife of New Jersey is an extraordinary resource and educational tool for anyone interested in preserving the state's natural heritage and provides a valuable wake-up call for all of us.
