He has led nature tours to more than 100 countries for the Massachusetts Audubon Society, Lindblad Travel, Friends of the Harvard Musum of Natural History, and cruises on all the world's oceans. Author of books on North American, Latin American, and African wildlife, Peter organized an event called Biodiversity Day in his hometown of Concord, Massachusetts.

    The most comprehensive field guide to the wildlife of Africa - a continent unparalleled in its ecological richness. All 577 stunning photographs are in full color, featuring 50 habitats, 200 mammals, 300 birds, and many reptiles and insects. The text covers 850 species, with 470 species range maps. A separate section provides in-depth descriptions and detailed maps for 58 countries and island groups. This field guide will long outlive its use on safari to serve as a definitive resource on African wildlife.
    The National Audubon Society Field Guides are the first to be organized with a visual key. Taxonomically arranged photographs, keyed with helpful thumb-tab silhouettes, make identification quick and easy.

    • As expected....
      Verified Purchase

      Bought this for an upcoming trip to Africa... the photo here does not match the one we were seeing from other vendors, so I was a little concerned when we ordered it, but it was the correct most current version when it arrived. (the redish sunset picture is wrong, it is a white cover with several wildlife pictures on it)
