Waiting on Wednesday: Woolly Monkey Mysteries: the quest to save a rain forest species by Sandra Markle
Woolly Monkey Mysteries: the quest to save a rain forest species by Sandra Markle. 40 p. Lerner Publishing Group, January 1, 2019. 9781512458688.
Publisher synopsis: Readers will learn how scientists use camera-trap technology to study woolly monkeys in the Manu Biosphere Reserve. These camera traps helped scientists discover information about the woolly monkeys' diet, behavior, and habitat. Known as the rainforest's gardeners, their activities and behaviors are essential to the survival of the trees and animals in the rainforest. Scientists must learn more to save this keystone species and protect the rainforests.
Anything new by Markle is pretty much an auto-purchase for me; but this series fits nicely with my seventh grade scientist unit in Digital Media.
