This is a handy-sized photographic field guide that aims to help visitors to this remarkable part of the world - beginner or expert - identify with confidence any bird or marine mammal they encounter during their journey from the tip of South America to the Great White Continent. This title includes: stunning colour plates showing typical views of each species of bird and marine mammal, together with the few terrestrial plants likely to be encountered; approx. 350 photos, 35 illustrations and 2 maps; detailed species profiles covering key identification features and where to look, plus fascinating facts and other talking points; introductory chapters to the Antarctic environments, divided into sections covering the wildlife of each area by season; and, information on tourism and Antarctic cruising, focusing on how to get the most from your visit, how to get there and what to take with you. Separate sections for each of the three main segments of a typical tour (Beagle Channel, Drake Passage and the Antarctic Peninsula) show the animals most typical of each region. Readership: For new and seasoned visitors to the seventh Continent who want to get the most out of their wildlife experience and would like a pocket-sized memento of their trip of a lifetime.
