Renowned photographer, writer and broadcaster Mark Carwardine reveals in his latest book, published in association with Wanderlust, his personal choice of the ultimate wildlife experiences in the world.



From close encounters with whales in Baja California to tracking Jaguars in Brazil, from cruising with polar bears in Svalbard to following Darwin's footsteps in the Galapagos, Mark makes the case for responsible ecotourism and, in his own words, has ^tried to pick places that anyone can visit without having to sleep rough or stand for weeks waist-deep in mosquito-infested swamps^.



These are the top 20 highlights:

Ghost bears in Canada, Whales in Baja California, Gorillas in Uganda, Penguins in Antarctica, Snow geese in New Mexico, Proboscis monkeys in Borneo, Sea otters in California, Jaguars in Brazil, Endangered birds in the Chatham Islands, Polar bears in Svlabard, Fruit bats in Zambia, Komodo dragons in Indonesia, Manatees in Florida, Seabirds in Iceland, Lemurs in Madagascar, Hummingbirds in Arizona, King penguins in Indonesia, Asian rhinos in India, Great white sharks in Mexico, Endemic wildlife in the Galapagos.
