About this book

With the worldwide success of the movie March of the Penguins, these fascinating flightless birds have become a symbol of the fragile nature of our ecosystem. Faced with global warming, invasive tourism, pollution and loss of habitat, penguins need our help more than ever to survive.

Over the last 18 years, Wayne Lynch has travelled thousands of miles to Antarctica, the Galapagos Islands, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand and a dozen remote island clusters in the tempestuous Southern Ocean to study and photograph the 17 species of penguins in their natural habitats. In this book, he documents the extraordinary life cycle of these tough, resourceful and beautiful birds in some of the harshest environments imaginable.

Lynch's prose is engaging and easy-to-read, and his beautiful photographs capture the birds in a wide variety of activities and behaviours.

Media reviews

" [...] There are many penguin books available, so which one should you choose? If you're mainly seeking spectacular photographs, check out Penguins, by Brutus Ostling and Susanne Akesson. It has more, and possibly better, photographs. However, the text is limited and the photos are of mostly the same species that Lynch has. On the other hand, if you'd like to learn about this unique family of birds (and still get some very nice pics), then look no further than this volume."
