              A Perfect Planet (Hardback)

              By Cordey, Huw; Foreword by Fothergill, Alastair

              Accompanying a major 5-part BBC series presented by David Attenborough and produced by the team behind Planet Earth and Blue Planet, Perfect Planet is an exploration of the unique conditions that make life on earth possible, and how our wildlife is perfectly adapted to its enviro...nment. There is no place like home. The conditions of Earth are not just good for life, they are perfect. Everything about our planet - its size, its distance from the Sun, its spin and tilt, its moon - is perfectly suited to our existence, and our planet's forces serve to nurture its spectacular biodiversity. Perfect Planet shows in stunning detail how Earth has always been more than the sum of its parts. Unlike any other astronomical body, it is a living world. Focusing on four key natural forces - global weather systems distributing fresh water to all corners; marine currents delivering nutrients to the deepest reaches of the ocean; solar energy warming and electrifying everything it touches; and volcanic activity fertilizing the earth's surface - Huw Cordrey reveals to us new levels of this living world, a place populated with astonishing characters living remarkable lives. From Arctic wolves prowling moonlit landscapes or wood frogs, frozen in winter and magically thawing back to life, to flamingos flying thousands of miles to a vast volcanic lake in Africa to breed, we see time and again how animals are perfectly adapted to whatever the environment throws at them. Packed with over 250 full-color images, and including a foreword by David Attenborough and stills from the BBC series' spectacular footage, Perfect Planet is a stunning exploration of life on Earth - life that is increasingly precious and rare.

              A striking photographic companion to the Netflix series from the team that brought us Planet Earth and The Blue Planet, presenting never-before-seen visuals of nature's most intriguing animals in action and the environmental change that has to be seen to be believed. Companion to... the Netflix series, Our Planet takes us on a journey across the globe's different biological realms to reveal the beauty of nature, the surprising secret lives of animals, and the unparalleled destruction of wildlife at the hands of humans. The good news is that, given the chance, forests can and do regrow; rivers will flow anew; grasslands can flourish where today there are deserts; and endangered species can recover. From the team behind the hugely successful nature documentaries The Blue Planet and Planet Earth, Our Planet demonstrates how we can give nature that chance, from penguins battling global warming to sharks benefiting from sanctuary areas and tigers in search of prey. Featuring stunning photographs of some of the world's rarest animals and previously unseen parts of the Earth (including deep oceans, remote forests, and ice caps), this book contains in-depth information organized by environment, behind-the-scenes captions, and bonus content beyond that covered in the eponymous show. With a keepsake package featuring debossing and foil stamping, this groundbreaking coffee-table book reveals the most amazing sights on Earth in unprecedented ways.
