The world has been captivated and saddened by the news of the Australian bushfires, and the toll that the fires have taken on Australia’s wildlife. News reports estimate that more than a billion animals have been killed, and a number of species with habitats destroyed by the fires are now endangered.
Australia’s remarkable animals are the stars of Outback: The Amazing Animals of Australia: A Photicular Book (Workman, Fall 2019, 978-1-5235-0823-5). Now Workman is offering a way for book retailers and consumers to make a difference for this wildlife as it faces so much danger.
Workman will make a donation of $2.00 per copy of Outback sold at retail from 1/18-2/29/20 (based on Bookscan reported sales) to WIRES Australian Wildlife Rescue Organization, which is working to help animals affected by the Australian bushfires.
