A new, fun children’s book urges everyone to save space creatures from extinction.
Amazing space creatures abound around the galaxy, but many are under threat because of industrial pollution, inter-galactic travel, war, hunting and other alien activities. A new book entitled A First Guide to Space Creatures, written by Faiz Kermani, aims to give readers on Earth the opportunity to learn about them and how they can protect their habitats.
The new book is inspired by the famous alien diplomat Ambassador Ticklydung, who has made it his life’s mission to protect space creatures and ensure that every alien gets the opportunity to see them in a more natural environment.
“Over the course of my diplomatic career I visited over two hundred planets and planetary bodies,” commented the Ambassador. “During this time, I encountered numerous weird and wonderful space creatures, which I felt compelled to write about in my journals. I’m delighted that Faiz has been able to use them as the basis for his book, which will draw attention to this urgent situation.”
At present the ATSCS houses just over 50 different types of space creatures, ranging from the tiny burrowing kwoj to the huge tringleesaurus, but there are plans to add more in the future. As well as providing a protective environment, the ATSCS also has a research centre which will drive efforts to re-introduce endangered space species into the wild.
“By buying this book you are helping support the important work of the ATSCS,” added the Ambassador. “Thanks to you, we hope to protect space creature wildlife for future generations.”
A First Guide to Space Creatures is available online at all reputable inter-galactic bookstores.
