by

Emi and the Rhino Scientist (Scientists in the Field) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Terri Roth trudges through the thick, dark Sumatran jungle. Shes looking for a rhinoceros thats been seen in the area. Its a rare Sumatran rhino, the worlds smallest rhino and one of the most endangered mammals on the planet.Suddenly she spots a young female rhino through the tangle of ferns and trees. The stocky animal is covered in reddish hair, and her snout sports two stubby horns. The rhino walks right up to Terri. The scientist slowly reaches out her hand and touches the rhinos big nose. The wild rhinos curiosity and friendliness remind Terri of Emi, the female Sumatran rhino that lives at the Cincinnati Zoo where Terri works. Terri is working with Emi to help save Sumatran rhinos from extinction—one calf at a time.

Synopsis:

Carson tells the true story of Terri Roth of the Cincinatti Zoo, whose mission is to save rare Sumatran rhinos from extinction--one calf at a time. Full color.

About the Author

Mary Kay Carson and Tom Uhlman first wrote about and photographed Emi for a magazine article about breeding captive rhinos after Andalas was born in 2001. Now they are married and live with their beloved dog Ruby in a century-old house in Cincinnati, Ohio surrounded by deer, hawks, woodchucks, songbirds and other creatures. Their newest book for the Scientists in the Field series is called The Bat Scientists. You can check them both out online at www.marykaycarson.com and www.tomuphoto.com.
