Title:   " Cries from the Wild "

Cries from the Wild carefully examines the survival of the "unfittest" with compassion and common sense. The problem is not always as obvious as pollution or loss of habitat. Sometimes conserving the land actually threatens species, such as the Blowout Penstemon in the Sandhills of Nebraska. The story introduces plants and animals we seldom see the people who are fighting back yet another extinction. Are these efforts heroic or misguided? Cries from the Wild challenges you to decide!">Today, plant and animal species are vanishing 100 times faster than before humans inhabited the earth. Cries from the Wild presents the bold question: "Does it matter?" It's easy to celebrate the successful nesting of magnificent peregrine falcons. But what about the survival of the once-common burying beetle, which feeds exclusively on decaying animal flesh? Birds and bugs can't vote, so how far should we go to protect our endangered species?
