There has never been a more critical moment in this planet’s history. Ecosystems and species stand upon the precipice of extinction and await human action.

 

Spurred by the urgency of the situation, Fly on the Wall Press has teamed up with WWF, The Climate Coalition, Dr Michelle Cain (Oxford University), former Derbyshire Poet Laureate, Helen Mort, and wildlife photographer, Emily Gellard, to create an anthology for our future. 

 

“Planet in Peril” combines beautiful photography of endangered species and delicate ecosystems, with poetry designed to increase public awareness of the complex issues surrounding climate change, alongside leading climate change research.

Release date: September 7th 2019

Fundraising total as of October 18th 2019: £93.98
