Galápagos Wildlife: A Visitor’s Guide, Third Edition, Bradt Travel Guides

The Galápagos Islands have an almost legendary status among biologists, wildlife enthusiasts and adventurous travellers alike. At over 1,000km from the Ecuadorian mainland, the flora and fauna of this volcanic archipelago have long evolved in isolation. Today its lunar landscapes still remain remarkably untouched by human presence, and visitors are stuck by the supreme nonchalance of the animals that wade, waddle and soar around the islands, from amiable sea lions to flamboyant albatrosses.

Galápagos Wildlife: A Visitor’s Guide, 3rd edition, is the most up to date guide book to the archipelago. The lively text describes all the endemic animals (and more) and illustrated with superb colour photos on land and below the sea. All main visitor sites are described in precise detail with accompanying colour maps. This fully updated and extended third edition offers a colourful and informative guide to the island’s unique flora and its marine and terrestrial wildlife. Packed with fascinating facts about the species and their habitats; plus invaluable tips on when and where to see what, Galápagos Wildlife makes and engaging companion on the ground and an ideal souvenir. For all wildlife enthusiasts, contains over 140 colour photographs, written by licensed Galápagos naturalist guides David Horwell & Pete Oxford. Includes all major wildlife groups, from mammals to invertebrates, Island-by-island summary of key sites, with full-colour maps and and extended section on plants.

“Extremely useful, with a good section detailing all of the main visitor sites” The Daily Telegraph
