Wild Philip­pines

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Our Wild World - BY NIGEL HICKS, JOHN BEAUFOY, £25

Be­fore trav­el­ling to the Philip­pines in 2017 for BBC World News, I searched for a book to give a thor­ough over­view of the di­verse and yet highly threat­ened wildlife across this fas­ci­nat­ing ar­chi­pel­ago. And at last, a cou­ple of years too late, I have fi­nally found it. Wild Philip­pines is much more than just a cof­fee-table book, it is a one-stop shop to en­sure any­one plan­ning a visit will hit the ground run­ning. Metic­u­lously re­searched and with ac­com­pa­ny­ing pho­to­graphs that il­lus­trate beau­ti­fully all habi­tats and many of the key species, it is ob­vi­ous that this book is the cul­mi­na­tion of years spent by the au­thor faith­fully record­ing this is­land na­tion’s na­ture.
