              Where Have All the Bees Gone?: Pollinators in Crisis (Library Binding)

              Bumblebees--the teddy bears of the bee world--are in trouble. There are roughly 250 species of bumblebees all in the genus Bombus worldwide. In North America alone, four once-common Bombus species have vanished from their former ranges. And that poses problems for everyone: Bumbl...ebees are the main pollinators for many of our food products, including blueberries, tomatoes, apples, and almonds. Author Rebecca E. Hirsch chronicles the evolution and the history of bees, examines the role of wild bees in food production and natural habitats, and digs into the serious threats they are facing--dwindling habitat, deadly pesticides, the spread of disease, and climate change. She also calls on young readers to act, outlining specific steps they can take to study, understand, and protect bumblebees.

              Quietly, without most people noticing, the population of giraffes in the wild has decreased by nearly 40 percent since 1985. Giraffes have disappeared entirely from seven countries where they used to live. Researchers believe fewer than 98,000 exist in the wild--fewer even than e...ndangered African elephants. In 2016, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature added giraffes to the organization's Red List of Threatened Species. What is causing their disappearance? Overpopulation of humans in giraffe habitats and illegal poaching. Learn about giraffes' physical characteristics, habitats, and life cycles; examine the dangers they face from humans and climate change; and meet the scientists working to save these gentle giants using technology and conservation efforts.

              August 18, 2020, marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, which prohibited states and the US government from denying citizens the right to vote on the basis of sex. See how the 70-year-long fight for women's suffrage was hard won by leaders such a...s Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Alice Paul, Carrie Chapman Catt and others. Learn how their success led into the civil rights and feminist movements of the mid- and late twentieth century, as well as today's #MeToo, #YesAllWomen, and Black Lives Matter movements. In the face of voter ID laws, voter purges, gerrymandering, and other restrictions, Americans continue to fight for equality in voting rights.

              Twenty-first-century minimalism is an increasingly mainstream response to global environmental crises such as climate change, the garbage glut, fast fashion, and other manifestations of the harmful impact of consumerism. Originally founded in the art world in the decades after Wo...rld War II, minimalism has evolved into an Earth-friendly lifestyle focusing on the three Rs (reducing, recycling, and reusing) and on simplifying individual needs to reduce one's carbon imprint, manage anxiety and depression, and prioritize human interaction over the impulse to acquire for the sake of acquisition. Hands-on activities, how-to tips, and profiles of practicing minimalists offer real-world examples for incorporating minimalism into your life.
