Editorial Reviews

Review

"[T]he wildlife guide of choice for those planning to visit the Falkland Islands. . . . Highly recommended!"--Chris Sharpe

"[T]his is a very nice little book, which is ideal for visitors to the Falkland Islands and deserves to do well. It effectively replaces the earlier field guides."--Andrew Clarke, Ibis

From the Back Cover


"This simple but highly practical guidebook is the first to cover Antarctica. Trotter deals with all the necessary information, such as how and when to get there, what to expect, what to bring (suggesting dry suits instead of wet), what wildlife you are likely to see, and underwater photography in the region."--Nigel Sitwell, Ocean Explorer

Format: Hardcover
For several years now, WILDguides have been setting the standard for small, handy field guides that focus mainly on the identification of neglected groups of wildlife, or wildlife guides to destinations for which handy field guides are lacking. Their approach is characterised by portability, the emphasis on visual utility (the use of computer enhanced photographs) and a significant contribution to conservation. The latter is achieved in two ways: firstly by getting these guides into the hands of the public at very competitive prices (WILDguides is a non-profit publisher) and secondly by donating all profits to conservation organisations that work on the area or organisms treated by each guide.

This guide is typical of the series. It is now the wildlife guide of choice for those planning to visit the Falkland Islands. The only guide that is similar is the now-outdated Field Guide to the Wildlife of the Falkland Islands and South Georgia (Collins Pocket Guide). For those wanting a bit more detail the Woods' Guide to Birds of the Falkland Islands, and "Atlas of Breeding Birds" (1997) may come in handy. However, since those who travel to the Falklands will almost certainly end up in mainland South America or Antarctica, I also carry Jaramillo's excellent Birds of Chile (Princeton Field Guides) and Shirihai's
