Publishers Weekly, 1986-11-28 Almost everyone likes a zoo. The special zoo facilities described here operate captive breeding programs for endangered species. A total of six speciesgrevy zebra, cheetah, Morelet's crocodile, wattled crane, golden lion tamarin and the Arabian oryxare discussed as well as the special efforts taken to prevent their extinction. Zoo keepers must encourage animals to breed and train them to return to the ``wild.'' The authors include a sensitive explanation of why animals become extinct. Some of the black-and-white photos are out of focus, poorly reproduced and look like snapshots; quality color photos could have made this valuable book a more visually exciting one.
