£16.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

This new, thoroughly updated and lavishly illustrated edition of Bradt's Galapagos Wildlife is packed with information and magnificent pictures to aid in identifying key species, all in an easy-to-carry format that covers everything from the wildlife that you're likely to encounter to underwater life and a succinct history of the islands, their habitats and volcanic origins. The most detailed descriptions and maps in print of the main visitor sites are included, so you can see where a boat will land and what can be seen there. An overview of conservation efforts is also included and so too are unique island trail plans for those looking to explore.

Written and illustrated by two expert-naturalist guides, this new edition covers all the latest information, from the discovery of an 'extinct' tortoise species not seen for over 100 years on Fernandina island and the discovery of new rare 'pink iguanas' on Isabela island's Wolf volcano, to the change in taxonomy of Darwin's finches and the new species status of the almost-extinct Vermillion flycatcher. Snorkelling with sea lions, penguins and sharks at Devil's Crown, Floreana is included, as is kayaking in pristine locations such as Espanola's Gardiner Bay.

Travelling to the Galapagos is a rite of passage for serious wildlife enthusiasts. Now with more detailed descriptions, more photos, and updated information on conservation efforts, Bradt's Galapagos Wildlife is the perfect companion for this once-in-a-lifetime trip.
