One of the largest nature photography projects ever undertaken, Wild Wonders of Europe presents an astonishing view of the continent’s flora and fauna. Organized by Staffan Widstrand, Florian Möllers, and Peter Cairns, award-winning nature journalists in their own right, this remarkable book reveals the wildlife and landscapes of all 48 European countries.
From dramatic views of spectacular landscapes to intimate moments with strange and rarely seen creatures, 68 photographers capture the full range of animal and plant life throughout the continent. The accompanying essays focus on conservation and reintroducing vulnerable species to their natural habitats, expressing hope for the future of European biodiversity.
