"This book presents a cross-section of endangered flying creatures with striking art and concise text." -- The Birder's Library

  • Stunning collection of endangered winged animals in distinctive pen and ink style
  • Features 66 endangered North American species of flight
  • Full-color illustrations throughout

Rare Air, the culmination of artist Sarah Kaizar's dedication to illustrating endangered fauna, features 66 endangered species of flight--33 birds, 5 bats, 12 bees, and 16 butterflies--presented in her scientifically accurate and utterly engaging pen-and-ink style. Complementing the art are informative and story-driven natural histories of each species by writer A. Scott Meiser, as well as interviews with biologists who are working to sustain some of the same species. An introduction highlights how Kaizar developed this project, while the "How to Get Involved" appendix provides helpful tips on actions readers can take to help these creatures.

Kaizar's work informs readers about the world around them in a way that is beautiful and engaging, while also examining the environmental conditions that put these species at risk. Rare Air broadens the conversation about environmental study and inspires readers across the country to care for our winged creatures.
