Please join the Sierra Club and River Action on November 28 to discuss 100 Heartbeats by Jeff Corwin.
100 Heartbeats is an environmentalist’s safari of Earth’s most endangered animals. Corwin – your guide and popular television host, adventurer and conservationist – describes his treks to find these precious creatures in their native habitats. Written in a style reminiscent of a sportsman spinning a tall-tail of the one that got away, 100 Heartbeats is a book you can’t put down.
Corwin keeps the pages turning as he vividly describes “hunting” for these animals alongside the scientists and conservationists who are working to understand and save them. His mission takes him from to equator to the poles and across the continents as he discusses the threats to the survival of these species. And it shouldn’t come as a surprise to learn that all the animals in the “100 Heartbeats Club” are threatened by human activity. But, hopefully, as Corwin concludes, human intervention and ingenuity can save a few.
Please join us on November 28, 2017 at 7PM at the River Action Office in Davenport to discuss 100 Heartbeats by Jeff Corwin.
