How do different animals cope when it rains? Can a homemade "bug hotel" invite beneficial insects to your yard? Can mice really sing? This highly engaging magazine offers profiles and fascinating articles about all manner of the world's creatures, natural habitats, and conservation and rescue efforts. Past stories include the efforts of two 13-year-olds to help save the endangered nautilus, the "zones of life" that make up the world's oceans, and the life and times of lemurs, tree frogs, rescued baby orangutans, and two very odd birds, indeed: the shoebill and the cassowary. The magazine's easy approachability is underscored by animal- and insect-themed jokes, observations and photos submitted by readers. A wealth of vivid photography illustrates each issue. The underlying theme: the interconnectedness of all nature.
