9780613451499: Nature of Penguins

With their toddler-like waddle and chubby tuxedoed bodies, penguins capture the hearts and imaginations of animal lovers of all ages. To Jonathan Chester, penguins have been a lifetime passion ever since he first encountered them as a child vacationing on the south coast of Australia with his family. In this beautiful book, the distinguished explorer and photographer takes us on a journey through the Antarctic, the land of the penguins. THE NATURE OF PENGUINS brings together Chester'¬?s firsthand observations of these endearing creatures and the amazing photographs from all of his polar expeditions. He explores the many incredible aspects of the discovery, biology, and behavior of the seventeen species of penguins around the world. Linking polar history with accounts of early expeditions, this book is as informative and insightful as it is beautiful. THE NATURE OF PENGUINS helps us appreciate why we need to protect these truly unique animals and preserve their native habitat.‚Ä¢ An excellent introduction to the world of penguins from a distinguished explorer, photographer, and thirty-year observer of penguins.
