From the savagely beautiful last remaining wild corner of the United States and the breathtaking savannas of Africa to the remote islands of the southern Pacific and the surprisingly rich sanctuaries of Eastern Europe, Destination Wildlife is the perfect guide for both seasoned and novice eco-travellers.

While this book specializes in encounters with rare and endangered species and their habitats, each site offers a unique experience ranging from the most rugged and adventurous to the ultra-pampered and luxurious. For every taste and budget, Destination Wildlife will usher you into the world of natural wonders-not some imitation theme park-whether you're seeking the elusive platypus in Australia, photographing the thundering herds of antelope in Africa, engaging the one-horned rhino form elephantback in northeast India, or following the calls of howler monkeys in the rain forests of Belize.

Written from a visitor's perspective and informed by the naturalists from the National Wildlife Federation, this book provides the what, where, when, how-and most important, the why-of more than 200 sites throughout the world that will guarantee the very best wildlife experiences.
