"[T]he wildlife guide of choice for those planning to visit the Falkland Islands. . . . Highly recommended!"--Chris Sharpe
"[T]his is a very nice little book, which is ideal for visitors to the Falkland Islands and deserves to do well. It effectively replaces the earlier field guides."--Andrew Clarke, Ibis
--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
From the Back Cover
"This simple but highly practical guidebook is the first to cover Antarctica. Trotter deals with all the necessary information, such as how and when to get there, what to expect, what to bring (suggesting dry suits instead of wet), what wildlife you are likely to see, and underwater photography in the region."--Nigel Sitwell, Ocean Explorer

This guide is typical of the series. It is now the wildlife guide of choice for those planning to visit the Falkland Islands. The only guide that is similar is the now-outdated Field Guide to the Wildlife of the Falkland Islands and South Georgia (Collins Pocket Guide). For those wanting a bit more detail the Woods' Guide to the Birds of the Falkland Islands, and the Atlas of Breeding Birds of the Falkland Islands may come in handy. However, since those who travel to the Falklands will almost certainly end up in mainland South America or Antarctica, I also carry Jaramillo's excellent Birds of Chile: Including the Antartic Peninsular, the Falkland Islands and South Georgia (Helm Field Guides) and Shirihai's A Complete Guide to Antarctic Wildlife: A Complete Guide to the Birds, Mammals and Natural History of the Antarctic.
And since WILDGuides are a non-profit organisation that supports conservation throughout the world, you are helping ensure that the wildlife you enjoy today will still be there for others to enjoy tomorrow. In this case, profits from the book go to Falklands Conservation.
Chris Sharpe, 23 July 2008. ISBN: 1903657105
thanks to this book when absorbed in watching sea lions cubs last Wednesday and a striated caracara took advantage and flew off with my lunch having undone my rucksack i was able to accurately name the culprit.
i also knew the little birds in the tussock ,strand line and in the diddle-dee and white grass.the bigger geese , vultures ,shell ducks and skukas and the very large albatross and fulmars could tell fellow guests that i had photographed .cormorants Antarctic turns too quick for me in flight , dolphins gulls more beautiful in motion.i can and do run on
only wish i had understood the sufferance to fleas in magellanic penguin colonies as a warning against being bitten by the fleas before it happened.
