Summary, etc.:
The most complete life list yet to the world's best places to see wildlife-both on and off the beaten path-from bird watching in the Costa Rican cloud forest and floating among the corals in the Maldives to volunteering at wild animal rescue groups or caring for injured endangered rhinos in South Africa. For anyone who is passionate about wildlife, this bucket list offers around-the-world listings of ways to experience animals and birds in their natural habitats. Fun, life-affirming activities are the focus from action-packed adventures (camel trekking in Jordan, riding among mustangs in the American West) to more relaxing experiences (savoring the peace of the Costa Rican cloud forest or floating among corals in the Maldives). Each activity is location-specific and geographically unique - whale-watching in Canada, bathing with snow monkeys in Japan, feeding elephants in Thailand. The book also addresses the issues facing vulnerable and endangered species, and suggests ways that travelers can help. Conservation-themed adventures include working as a Giant Panda keeper in China, caring for wounded rhinos in South Africa, volunteering at an endangered orangutan rescue in Indonesia, and guarding baby turtles in Costa Rica as they make their way from beach to ocean. Everyone has lifelong dreams of experiences they yearn to have, and this bucket list provides all the inspiration and practical advice necessary for the seasoned globetrotter or armchair traveller alike.
