Antarctic Wildlife: A Folding Pocket Guide to Familiar Species of the Antarctic and Subantarctic Environments (Pocket Naturalist Guide) (Folded)
According to many travel sites and vacationers, one of the hottest destination spots is Antarctica, one of the coldest places on the planet-- celebrities including Prince Harry of Wales and Alexander Sarsgaard have made a South Pole expedition. For adventurous vacationers, or anyone interested in learning about Antarctica's diverse species, Waterford Press introduces Antarctic Wildlife, the first and only pocket-sized guide to the continent and the essential travel companion. Despite the sub-zero temperatures, Antarctica is home to an incredible array of wildlife, but it's not always easy to know what you're looking at. And without wi-fi or cell phone service, you can't rely on your smart phone for help. Antarctic Wildlife is easy to read and understand, with detailed visuals and concise, clear descriptions. Antarctic Wildlife is a pocket reference guide to more than 120 of the most common species of marine birds, whales, seals, fishes and marine invertebrates found in this remote region. Beautiful illustrations and detailed descriptions highlight the distinguishing features of the familiar species eco-tourists are most likely to see on land and at sea during their visit. Laminated for durability, and lightweight at just 1 ounce, pocket-sized folding guide is an excellent source of information and easy to pack. Made in the USA. www.waterfordpress.com.
