This is a budget version of the travel guide with reduced publishing costs, it is black and white (b/w) inside, compared to the standard fully colorful version also available at AMAZON. The book is an unique "smart" travel guide, which I made at first to be solely used in my own, after buying so many travel guides and still feeling - they aren't good enough for my adventures to explore wilderness as a biologist and wildlife photographer. I was missing it during my trip to Patagonia in 2017, otherwise, I would be much more efficient as a wildlife photographer and traveler. With this first book, I start my new "wilderness explorer series", which I hope, will be a good "practical tool", an all-to-know set of guide books for you (for me as well), while you are exploring the world with responsible mind and open heart as a truly nature lover. The book contains 60 GPS coordinates of important to know places, 35 website links, covering about 20 different the most spectacular sightseeing locations at the Peninsular Valdes and around, it has a detailed wildlife map, and over 20 photographs I made in March-April 2017. The book describes all specific photographic seasons when wild animals can be sighted: e.g. when orcas, killer whales, can beach themselves in order to catch sea lion pups, or when is the best to see Magellanic penguins or fighting "beachmasters" of gigantic Elephant seals with intruder male seals, or when and where is the best to be to witness Southern Right whales coming very close to shores with their calves vocalizing and breaching out of peninsula's waters. I also give all the information for wild and paid camping, hotels and hostels, supermarkets, gasoline stations and ATMs, roads conditions, travel scenarios, airports, public buses, prices for certain touristic services, wildlife safaris, whale watching. There is a very detailed and updated chapter for travel means with long-distance buses and flights in Patagonia and Argentina, including how to get in/out in Buenos Aires airports, a main bus station, and a train station. The book can be equally useful for "budget" adventure seekers, "fast & easy" with a rented car or travel agency travelers as well as for paid wildlife and travel photographers on a mission.Printed versions of the book went far beyond of my anticipations; quality is highest standard possible, they are rather small (15x23 cm), light-weight (only 150 g each), fully colorful inside with maps and GPS coordinates, pages are robustly made and glued, the cover is made of water-repellent paper, books are flexible, you can bend them, nothing will happen... though, they are ideal to put them into your backpack and use them while you travel through wonderful Patagonia... Enjoy and take care!

Patagonia. The name connotes the exotic and a distance that seems nearly mythical. Tucked toward the toe of South America, this largely unsettled landscape is among the most varied and breathtaking in the world-aching in its beauty as it sweeps from the Andes through broad, arid steppes to pristine beaches and down to a famously violent sea. It is also home to a vast array of rare wildlife as diverse and fascinating as the region itself. Act III in Patagonia is the first book to take an in-depth look at wildlife and human interaction in this spectacular area of the world. Written by William Conway, former president of the Wildlife Conservation Society, the book is unique in its concentration on the long Patagonian shoreline--populated by colorful cormorants, penguins, elephant seals, dolphins, sea lions, and numerous species of whale--and an increasing number of human beings. Threatened by overfishing, invasive species, artificially abundant predators, and overgrazing, the Southern Cone of Patagonia is now the scene of a little-known conservation drama distinguished by the efforts of a dedicated group of local and foreign scientists determined to save one of the Earth's least-inhabited places. From tracking elephant seals in the Atlantic to following flamingos in the Andes, Act III in Patagonia takes readers to the sites where real-life field science is taking place. It further illuminates the ecology of the region through a history that reaches from the time of the Tehuelche Indians known by Magellan, Drake, and Darwin to the present. Conway has helped to establish more than a dozen wildlife reserves in South America and is thus able not only to tell Patagonia's history, but to address its future. He brings a wealth of knowledge about Patagonia and its wildlife and responds to the difficult questions of how the interests of humans and wildlife are best balanced. He tells of the exciting collaborations among the Wildlife Conservation Society and its national and provincial partners to develop region-wide programs to save wildlife in steppes, coast, and sea, demonstrating that, with public support, there is hope for this stunning corner of the world. Though singular in their details, the conservation efforts Conway spotlights are a microcosm of what is happening in dozens of sites around the world.
