About this book

Three long-time observers of the okapi present a complete, contemporary natural history of this appealing relative of the giraffe, which inhabits the Ituri Forest. They recount its discovery by European explorers and describe its appearance and life cycles, whilst highlighting the current efforts to preserve the species both in the wild and in zoos around the world.

Media reviews

This book will have long-lasting effects on conservation of the okapi and preservation of the forest: the authors' research will heighten awareness of the plight of the okapi, and their royalties will go directly to helping ... the Ituri Forest conservation program. You will be helping if you buy this book and encourage your friends to do the same. Okapis have a special place in the natural world, and it is up to us to ensure that they and their forests survive. --Jane Goodall
