Description

National Geographic: The Wildlife Photographs is organized by habitat. For each habitat community - desert, ocean, forest, savanna - the book presents photographs that render a sense of place, people in the field facing the photographic & physical hardships of extreme conditions, and a variety of wildlife of every description. Organization by habitat allows the author to present the very different challenges both for wildlife and for journalists in each environment, and the chapters tell dramatically different stories. By displaying entire ecological communities, we show the interrelationships among the creatures that inhabit a particular place. The delicacy of these relationships and the associated conservation implications are obvious but the conservation message is offered with subtlety. National Geographic has expanded the world's understanding and appreciation of wildlife and this book tells that story, displaying it with high drama. To complement the broad geographic approach to each chapter, sidebar features focus on individual photographers at work in the habitals of individual wildlife species.
