Synopses & Reviews
For thousands of years, tracking animals meant following footprints. Now satellites, drones, camera traps, cellphone networks, and accelerometers reveal the natural world as never before. Where the Animals Go is the first book to offer a comprehensive, data-driven portrait of how creatures like ants, otters, owls, turtles, and sharks navigate the world. Award-winning geographer James Cheshire and designer Oliver Uberti tell enthralling stories of individual animals through astonishing four-color charts and maps, and they introduce the scientists at the forefront of this animal-tracking revolution. A lovelorn wolf traverses the Alps; pythons race through the Everglades; and humpback whales visit undersea mountains. Cheshire and Uberti's stunning designs explain how warblers detect incoming storms using sonic vibrations, how baboons make decisions, and why storks prefer garbage dumps to wild forage. Where the Animals Go will transform our understanding of the animal kingdom.
"Beautiful as well as informative and inspiring. There is no doubt it will help in our fight to save wildlife and wild habitats."--Dr. Jane Goodall
