Scientists in the Wild: Galápagos by Helen Scales
Join a crew of marine biologists as they sail around one of the world's most amazing habitats: the Galapagos Islands.
"An enchanting and absorbing read showcasing the islands’ scientific importance, history, and beauty. A visual feast for the eyes and mind"
—Sabina Radeva, author of On The Origin of Species
"A vibrant adventure that captures the exciting lives off conservationists in the field. Packed full of wild facts, this book celebrates rare biodiversity and highlights how we all must work together to save it." —Megan McCubbin, BBC 2's Springwatch
Tasked with observing and cataloguing the islands’ amazing wildlife and habitats, the scientists need to track down the animals and plants that are unique to the ecosystem and make a visual record. To get the job done they’ll have to climb volcanoes, get sneezed on by marine iguanas, launch a submersible and explore the deep-sea, and so on. Along the way we’ll encounter the experts who are the inheritors of Darwin’s scientific legacy, and learn all about marine conservation.
