A brand new edition of this best-selling classic, to celebrate its 30th anniversary, with a new foreword by actor and comedian Stephen Fry and a fresh 'Mark's Last Word' to bring the story up-to-date. Mark teamed up with Douglas Adams (author of The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy) and together they embarked on a groundbreaking expedition, travelling the globe in search of some of the world's most endangered animals. A large, black, sleepy animal easily mistaken for an unusually listless mudbank, a parrot with a song like an unreleased collection of Pink Floyd studio outtakes, a rhino with square lips, a dragon with deadly saliva and the creature most likely to emerge from the cargo doors of a spaceship are among their quests. Both funny and poignant, Last Chance to See is the tale of an unforgettable wildlife odyssey - and a timely reminder of all that we must protect.
