Narrator Laura Jennings delivers this important environmental call to action. Looking well beyond bees and hummingbirds--the pollinators listeners are likely most familiar with--Jodi Helmer points to the significantly more diverse nature of these busy creatures, their critical role in our ecosystem, and the threats they face: invasive species, pesticide use, habitat loss, and climate change. Jennings's slightly breathy voice is steady throughout, carefully enunciating each thought while maintaining an even tone, save for instances when emphasis is necessary due to an argument's urgency or the shocking nature of a statistic. However, the main content is regularly interrupted by sidebars and tables, a format better suited to print readers than listeners. Nonetheless, this is an informative, inspiring listen.
