Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
While zoos can offer a glimpse into the nature of wild animals, it is only by observing an animal in its natural habitat that it becomes truly possible to understand sits nature. While a select few have the ability to join an animal in the wild, the rest of the population must rely on images of animals in their natural settings. Wildlife photographers can spend days or weeks searching for animals in their habitats before being able to carefully observe and record them. Many photographers set up cameras and optical traps that trigger the cameras when animals pass through the traps. Thomas offers glimpses into how wildlife photographers hunt for rarely seen animals and takes care to point out the danger photographers face when trying to catch images of particularly dangerous animals. The author also illustrates the importance of wildlife photography, loss of natural habitats and how overhunting of wild animals has made it increasingly difficult to find animals in their natural habitat. Full-color illustrations, brief descriptions of photographers' gear and different environments add depth to the text, which is part of the "Cool Careers: Adventure Careers" series.
