Summary
  • This title in the Scientists in the Field series introduces young readers to one of the weirdest and most fascinating animals on the planet and recounts the extraordinary work of the dedicated scientists trying to save them. Full color
  • If you've never seen a lowland tapir, you're not alone. Most of the people who live near tapir habitat in Brazil's vast Pantanal haven't seen the elusive snorkel-snouted mammal, either! Join a tapir-finding expedition led by the Brazilian field scientist Pati Medici, and learn about the fieldwork, and the high-tech science at play, from microchips to the camera traps that capture the "soap opera" of tapir life
