Ten spectacular photo essays showcase the special birds, mammals, and reptiles that make Galapagos their home. Among these fascinating creatures are: -- Sea lions at play-- Marine iguanas at waters edge-- Tortoises of Alcedo Volcano-- Whales, sharks, and vampire finches-- Winged visitors from the wide ocean As the twentieth-first century looms, the Galapagos Islands are reaching a critical crossroads from which they will emerge with difficulty. This vividly illustrated volume celebrates their vibrant essence.
