A uthor ’s Note
I was born and bro ught up in Calcutta (p resently Ko lkata) , India. I li ved in a place called Pa tuli, a suburban locality off the southe rn fringes of the city.
I grew up flyi ng kites and pla ying cri cket and ma ny othe r outdoor games wi th my friends in the green fields dott ed by ponds and small lake s near my home. Many kinds o f trees surroun ded the fields. There was ev en a smal l cemeter y nearby t hat was so dens e with trees and shr ubs, it felt like a forest to me .
Having spen t my childhoo d in such a green space allowed me to see man y animals, big and small , from close quar ters. I spent hours looking at wa ter buffaloes swimming in the pond b y my home. Sometimes I dangled m y feet outside the window as I watc hed the buffaloes. I saw the glow ing ey es of jackals during po wer ou tages at nights. I saw mongooses, lizards, different species of birds, and snakes al l around me.
I watched vultures feeding and wo ndered how w ide their wings co uld spread. I sparred an d headbutted wi th my neigh bor’s kid goats. I we nt hungry many time s so I could feed the loca l stray dogs and cats. I tri ed catching little fish with m y hands fro m ditches and ponds. Sometimes I ev en used m y mother’ s old saree (a n Indian dress ) as a net to ca tch the fish. If I managed to catch some, I kept them in my aquar ium for a few days before releasing them back in the wild.
I grew up lo ving an d caring for these anima ls. This green hea ven of the place that was my home is long gone now . Be cause of urbani zation, the animals I saw during my c hildhood are now here to be fo und today .
I still care fo r animals. If we don’t take care of our plane t’s species div ersity , the magnificent wi ldlife we huma ns cohabit wi th will cease to ex ist and our future generat ions will ex perience the m on paper only . T his book is my attempt to bring a warenes s of animal cons ervatio n to yo ung people. I hope that future generations will see to it that the immense speci es diver sity of this plane t is never lost.

N orth Atlant ic Righ t Whal e
Coast of Newf oundland, North Am erica
The North At lantic right wh ale is one of the rar est marine mammal species and gro ws to more than fifty feet. It is mostly black in color wit h white marki ngs on its head that look li ke patches. Those are called ca llosities. U nlike ot her whales, the North Atlan tic right whal e does not hav e a dorsal fin on top. Instead of t eeth, it has baleen plates in its mouth that filte r the zooplankt on it eats.
Like othe r mammals, a new born right wha le, known as a ca lf, keeps close c ontact wit h its mother by swimming up on her back or butting her with it s head. Sometimes the mother may roll ov er to hold her calf wi th her flippers. The wh ales speak to each o ther by making lo w-pitche d moaning and whining sounds.
