Earth's biodiversity is vanishing at an alarming rate. This video from National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore shows what we stand to lose.
Some of them are likely to go extinct without people ever knowing they existed, and the goal of the book is to give them a voice. Part of a multi-year project documenting Earth's vanishing biodiversity, Rare shows what we stand to lose if we don't act now.
The good news is that there is still time, and this book highlights what each of us can do to save these unique creatures -- and ultimately, ourselves.
