The Gobi bear, a critically endangered species, lives only in Mongolia's Gobi Desert. Since 1987, when scientists determined that probably fewer than 40 of the bears remained, the government has instituted a hunting ban, set aside large protected areas for them, and educated the Mongolian public, including children, about these rarely seen bears, but their population has not rebounded as hoped. Global warming and "ninja miners," illegally searching the region for gold, add to conservationists' concerns. Markle describes the bears (related to grizzlies, but smaller) and the Gobi Bear Project, which studies them, works to ensure their survival, and raises awareness of their plight. As in her previous books on the efforts to rescue other endangered species, from golden lion tamarins to African penguins to whale sharks, she gathers a good deal of relevant information, organizes it logically, and presents it clearly with a young, engaged audience in mind. Illustrated with a well-chosen color photo and/or map on every page, this book provides an effective introduction to Gobi bears and the scientists working to save them. Grades 4-6.
