"This is a book about my favourite places in the world to watch wildlife. It's a personal selection of the wildlife hotspots that have made the greatest impact on me over the years, the wildlife-rich corners of the world that I return to time and time again, and miss the most when I'm somewhere else."
Among Mark's choices are some of the world's most iconic creatures and wildlife destinations - the playful lemurs of Madagascar; the fearsome dragons of Komodo, with their venomous drool and knockout tails; and the unique, Darwin-inspiring wonderland of the Galapagos Islands. But there are plenty of surprises as well, from the rare and beautiful spirit bears of British Columbia's Great Bear Rainforest to the endangered bird haven of the Chatham Islands, adrift in the far South Pacific. Accompanied by details on how to visit each destination, including advice on lodges, climate and access, this is both an inspirational read and a practical guide to unforgettable encounters you can enjoy yourself.
