Congratulations to Tara at Raising Itty-Bitty Bookworms! She's the winner of our first giveaway.
She will receive a copy of A Life in the Wild: George Schaller's struggle to save the last great beasts, by Pamela S. Turner. This is a compelling biography of George Schaller, a leading field biologist who studies many different wild animals in their native habitats. Tara will definitely enjoy it. She said, "I know my nine year old would be too excited about it. Her dream is to one day become a vet at a zoo." This book is about how you can have a passion as a young person and develop it into a meaningful scientific career.
Anyone interested in nature and the environment should also check out Pamela Turner's upcoming book, The Frog Scientist. It's a fascinating look at the work of Tyrone Hayes, a biologist who studies the environmental impact of pollution and pesticides on frog populations.
I picked the winner using Random.Org's random number generator. A copy will be in the mail shortly.
