Zoology: Mammals; Wildlife: mammals
Australia has a rich and unique array of animals, including the largest diversity of marsupials on earth. The recent growth in ecotourism has increased the popularity of mammal-spotting, particularly whale and dolphin-watching, but also spotting of perennial tourist favorites such as koalas and kangaroos. For the first time ever, The Complete Guide to Finding the Mammals of Australia advises interested amateurs and professionals where to locate many of Australia's mammals. The book describes Australia's best mammal-watching sites state-by-state. It also includes a complete, annotated taxonomic list with hints on finding each species (or why it won't be easy to see); sections on travel and logistics in Australia; and appendices with hints on finding and photographing mammals.

Reviews for The Complete Guide to Finding the Mammals of Australia

As someone who travels to Australia rather more often than is proper for my carbon footprint, it was a delight to find the new book coming in for review [...] this book is manna from heaven. David Andrew is an accomplished author and experienced travel guide, and the scope and coverage of this book shows his expertise to good effect. It includes a state-by-state guide to sites to visit [...] There is a decent sized colour plate section, and the second half of the book provides a mammal-finding guide. Want to see a Fat-tailed False Antechinus? This book will suggest where to look. [...] My pre-trip browsing will be lavished on the excellent printed edition.
