Gone: a search for what remains of the world’s extinct creatures
More than just tales of extinction, this title follows the author’s own journey of discovery and the judges praised the detail that the book went into, often exploring some lesser-known and therefore overlooked species – such as the Ivell’s Sea Anemone Edwardsia ivelli. Not surprisingly, the book comes with an important message, where lessons from human-driven extinctions have yet to be learnt.
