About this book

Penguin Planet: Their World, Our World is a celebration of all things penguin. Author and photographer Kevin Schafer made it his mission to see and photograph every remaining penguin species in the wild, and the first edition was the result of that journey. This new edition combines even more exceptional photography with colorful personal essays and up-to-date information on a most remarkable and utterly unique group of birds. In this extraordinary collection, Schafer not only discusses how penguins live but also captures them on camera, while dispelling many popular misconceptions. (Did you know that most penguin species never encounter ice and snow in their lifetimes?) In addition, Schafer examines important and timely topics, including the effects of global climate change and how these unlikely birds are faring in an increasingly human-altered world.
