About the book
This book brings together a very special collection of pictures. Planet Earth is now regarded as the ultimate wildlife TV series, and its magic lies in its photography. Featuring the very best of Planet Earth images - from breathtaking aerials to unique, intimate portraits - Planet Earth, The Photographs is full of surprises, spectacle and a sense of awe. It is also, to quote David Attenborough, 'an eloquent rallying call to all of us who care for the Earth's welfare to redouble our efforts to protect those wonders that still survive.'
Accompanying the images are thought-provoking captions by Planet Earth series producer Alastair Fothergill, along with quotes from the good and great of the wildlife and conservation world. Together they reveal the wonders of life on earth today and remind us that, without action, 'within the next few years, the world itself may never look the same again.'
'There is something about the wonder of nature, nature in its infinite variety and mystery, that touches people in their very souls.' Planet Earth - The Future
