This is a fairy tale about the endangered animals created at the initiative of Young Participants from all around the world. We care about the environment and through this book, we would like to attract the attention of society to the problem of animal extinction.

The plot of the fairy tale is that a California Condor meets a lost little Iberian Lynx. The Condor helps him find his family and learn that the world is not as bad as it seems at a first glance.

Main heroes

California condor – one of the world’s largest birds that lives in the South and West parts of California and Arizona. The Condor population dropped dramatically in the 20th century: the large bird is a perfect target for hunters.

Iberian Lynx – is an incredibly beautiful animal that lives in the mountains of Spain. The Lynx was on the brink of extinction because of car accidents, reduction of habitat, and poaching.
