About the Author
Will Burrard-Lucas is a professional wildlife photographer from the UK.
His fascination with wildlife began in childhood when he was fortunate enough to spend some years living in Africa. His interest in wildlife never waned and he has travelled extensively over the years to see and photograph creatures from all corners of the globe.
On a quest for the perfect shot, he designs clever gadgets and gizmos to help him achieve fresh perspectives.
Getting his camera amidst a pride of lions immediately after a kill, capturing the scale of the wildebeest migration from the air and edging up close to giant Komodo Dragons are all part of the day job.
Will’s wife, Natalie Burrard-Lucas, is a doctor and also a keen writer. She shares Will’s wanderlust and joins him on many of his wildlife escapades. They recently spent a year living and working in Zambia. The latest addition to their travel team is their daughter, Primrose.

The book is divided into four sections: Eurasia; Africa; Americas; and Australasia and the Antarctic Zone. Within each unit the authors cover various noteworthy nature attractions. The Africa section, for example, includes the Bale Mountain National Park, Serengeti National Park, the Maasai Mara National Reserve, Volcanoes National Park, the Okavango Delta and the Amber Mountain National Park. The Americas chapter features Katmai National Park, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, the Cayman Islands, the Galapagos Islands, etc. Each section begins with a one-two page write-up describing the attraction and its wildlife inhabitants, notable species and suggested 'when to go' dates to view the site.
The book's main selling point is the hundreds of gorgeous, color photographs capturing Martial Eagles, Thornicroft's Giraffes, Crowned Lemurs, West Indian Woodpeckers, Black Rhinoceros, Bat-Eared Fox, Ring-Tailed Mongoose, Grand Cayman Blue Iguanas, African Wild Dogs, Leopards, Timor Deer, Western Lowland Gorillas, Sri Lankan Sloth Bears, Ethiopian Wolves, Gibbons, Golden Pheasants, Mantled Howler Monkeys, King Penguins, Bengal Tigers and on and on.
