The cover of this handy guide to the wildlife of China is a colour photo of, yes, you guessed it, a Giant Panda. A stunning photo of a Snow Leopard graces the back cover. But this 202-page colourful book, in the Bradt Series, covers much more than the familiar species. There are main chapters on Landscape, Habitats, Mammals, Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians, Fish, Invertebrates and very useful Making The Most Of It and Where To Go. Chinese Wildlife is
the only English language book on China dedicated solely to wildlife and author Martin Walters has covered a great deal and packs in many tips for the visitor. The book is illustrated by over 300 colour photos by Heather Angel, many of them really mouth-watering. China is not only about the Great Wall, and this book proves it.
Before joining any wildlife watching or birding tour, wherever in the world, try to establish if the travel company you are considering booking with operates in an environmentally friendly, responsible manner.
