Availability: 65 in stock

"In Albatross, De Roy - an author of many books on wildlife themes - and co-author Mark Jones attracted wide praise for the spectacular photography, evocative text and fascinating science.

Those elements recur in their new publication, the first comprehensive book to cover all 18 penguin species. It's worth every cent of the retail price."

Ken Fraser, ESCAPE, The Press

The first book to comprehensively cover all of the 18 penguin species in an engaging blend of accessible writing, the latest scientific research and over 400 breathtaking photographs.

Perhaps the most loved of birds, we’ve been fascinated by penguins for just about as long as we’ve known they existed.

Incredible photography takes you into the heart of the penguins’ lives and essays from leading researchers reveal the fascinating science being used to find out more about these engaging birds. A comprehensive species by species description with the latest information and maps.
