About this book

An engaging and beautifully illustrated full-colour guide to some of the most exciting wildlife in the world in an area about to see a significant increase in visitor numbers as a direct result of changes in the ice cover of the Arctic Ocean. Bradt's Arctic Wildlife is an ideal companion on board and on shore.

A fascinating and informative read. Visitors to the far north cruise the Arctic coast in the company of humpback whales and belugas, see polar bears hunt ringed seals, and come in contact with a host of shorebirds and wildfowl gorging on the abundance of summer food. This fourth edition includes new illustrations, a section covering the distinct flora and fauna of the Bering Sea and the revised version of the Arctic Code of Conduct. Tony Soper's expert knowledge is richly supplemented with full-colour illustrations by award-winning wildlife artist Dan Powell.

Biography

Tony Soper, co-founder of the renowned BBC Natural HIstory Unit, is a naturalist film-maker who has explored the coastal waters of Alaska, northern Canada, Greenland, Svalbard and Arctic Siberia north to the pole, as lecturer and expedition leader on icebreakers and ice-hardened vessels. His enthusiasm for wildlife has been shared by a huge number of cruise guests over twenty years. This book aims to answer some of their questions!

Dan Powell has been a wildlife artist since graduating from Dyfed College of Art in Wales in 1983. He was honoured as British Birds Illustrator of the Year in 1996. His work has appeared in numerous books and journals, including many publications by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, on subjects ranging from parrots to dragonflies. He is happiest when out sketching in the field – especially when stuck in the middle of a bog.
