This review is from: Where The Animals Go: Tracking Wildlife with Technology in 50 Maps and Graphics (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme.
^^ This book is about a new era, one in which the traces they follow are imprinted not in the earth but in the silicon of computer chips.
^^ Where The Animals Go mixes conservation, wildlife and habitats with the secret lives of animals as their journeys are tracked and mapped with often surprising results. It’s loaded with information about the animals and their tracking data.
^^ From the “Elephant Who Texted Help”, and “Jaguars Taking Selfies” (believe me, there’s some great tales about these) to “The Zebras Migrating Once More”, we are provided with a wealth of information involving details of national parks, reserves and wildlife management across the globe.
^^ This hardcover can be dipped into like a coffee table book, but the detail is in the data and this is where it really comes into play, because the text makes for a fascinating read, alongside the informative maps and pictures. Some of the maps even unfold to make a larger three page spread.
^^ If there was one thing I’d change it would be the cover, considering the information and data inside, the cover looks a bit unappealing and 70s style old-fashioned.
Overall: The information provided within is visually wonderful, with some real ‘wow’ insights that make this an ideal coffee table book for not only animal lovers but conservationists and conversationalists!
