The living wild by Art Wolfe( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nearly 400 photos taken by renowned nature photographer Wolfe capture more than 140 species of wildlife in their natural habitats. "A Ulysses for the New Millenium", Art Wolfe's personal odyssey started with a photograph of a Florida panther, one of North America's rarest animals (less than 50 remaining in the wild), & ended over three years later with a photograph of a polar bear cub fresh from the den, taking its first tentative steps on spring snow. The journey to capture on film the world's most spectacular animals took him four times around the world (in a lot more than 80 days each time) & to every continent (most more than once) & over 40 different countries including Mongolia three times (without ever seeing the snow leopard he sought). However, the Bornean bay cat, never before photographed alive, did not escape his lens! His travels also included most every means imaginable: safari vehicle, horse, camel, kayak, helicopter, private & commercial jet, ultra-light, dugout canoe, elephant, fins with scuba tank, and, of course, on foot. Despite 25 years of photographing in the wild, Art compiled a list of personal firsts during this mission: learning to scuba dive-in the frigid Puget Sound in October-in order to photograph humpback whales in Tonga & great white sharks in South Africa, photographing tigers, jaguars & cougars in the wild, & visiting countries like India & Iceland. The less intrepid explorer can experience it all in Art's premier book, The Living Wild. Together the more than 140 different species, worthy of a Noah's Ark, present the case for just how much is at stake, why we should care enough to act, & why there really is reason for hope

In a remarkable text, Eric Grace sets out to discover the true nature of lions. His lively and informed discussion of these creatures is accompanied by stunning photographs by the world-renowned wildlife photographer Art Wolfe. From how a lion's physical construction makes it one of nature's greatest hunters, to the conditions that have made lions the only truly social cats, all aspects of lions' biology and behavior are discussed in The Nature of Lions. The book explores the magical and checkered relationship between humans and lions from prehistory to the present, and includes a look at the status of lions today and efforts to preserve them. Throughout, spectacular photographs show lions chasing a herd of wildebeests, eating their kill on the savanna, caring for their young, or basking in the shade of an acacia tree. Together, the images and text capture the power and majesty of this most social of cats

Animals on the edge : reporting from the frontline of extinction by Christopher Weston( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Chris Weston and Art Wolfe are among the finest wildlife photographers at work today as well as being passionate advocates of wildlife conservation. This book features their stunning photographs of some sixty rare and endangered mammals across six continents, from the High Arctic to rain forest, steppe, and desert. The chapters are organized by region, and the photo captions detail each animal's habits, habitat, and conservation status. In his concise, compelling reports, Weston goes behind simplistic headlines of good versus evil, of innocent creatures assailed by greedy, selfish humans. Instead he investigates all sides of the story, talking to villagers, officials, scientists, poachers, hunters, and conservation workers. What becomes powerfully clear is the need for solutions that work for people as well as animals. The reasons that animals are endangered are many-from habitat destruction and illegal hunting to global warming-but there is one common factor: the conflict between animals and people sharing the same piece of land is intensifying
