With the worldwide success of the movie March of the Penguins, these fascinating flightless birds have become a symbol of the fragile nature of our ecosystem. Faced with global warming, invasive tourism, pollution and loss of habitat, penguins need our help more than ever to survive. Over the last 18 years, Wayne Lynch has travelled thousands of miles to Antarctica, the Galapagos Islands, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand and a dozen remote island clusters in the tempestuous Southern Ocean to study and photograph the 17 species of penguins in their natural habitats. In Penguins of the World, he documents the extraordinary life cycle of these tough, resourceful and beautiful birds in some of the harshest environments imaginable. Lynch's prose is engaging and easy-to-read, and his beautiful photographs capture the birds in a wide variety of activities and behaviours. Penguins of the World is a book not to be missed by anyone interested in the future of life on this planet.
