The frozen wastes of the Southern Ocean; the tropical rainforests of South America, the scorching grasslands of Africa, the dizzy heights of the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas: Martin Hughes-Games has been to every continent on earth filming natural history programmes. A Wild Life is Martin's personal account of his astonishing adventures around the world, both as a presenter for the BBC and a producer of nature documentaries. We all know Martin as a member of Springwatch and Autumnwatch team, but before his presenting days he spent many years behind the camera producing up-close-and-personal wildlife documentaries on location often in perilous conditions. During a career spanning more than three decades, he has captured the extraordinary life and diversity of the animal kingdom on film - from bloodthirsty bats and man-eating tigers, to huge elephant seals and tiny but ever so painful centipedes. Warmly told with humour and an inimitable style, and packed with insightful facts from the natural world - how fast is the fastest creature on earth, the peregrine falcon? How high can a bird, the bar headed goose on migration, really fly? - A Wild Life has to be one of the natural history books of the year.

In the 1960s Mare and Jeff Carter staged their own ââ¬~Sea Change'. Swapping city life for a cottage in the Australian bush, Mare was searching for a better way to live and bring up their children. But she soon discovered life had lot more in store for her. Within months hers had become a surrogate home for orphaned and injured wildlife: a string of lovable wombats, a solitary but sexually frustrated kangaroo, madcap emus, eagles, wallabies, dingos and many more. Ultimately Mare's farm became one of Australia's most popular wildlife sanctuaries, attracting more than 25,000 visitors a year. But A WILD LIFE is much more than a captivating story of creatures great and small. It is the memoir of an extraordinary woman, determined to follow a different life path and live out her dream against all the odds. Mare writes with warmth and humour about her very unconventional family and of the realities ââ¬" both harsh and hilarious ââ¬" of living in the wild.

Human-wildlife conflict is a major issue in conservation. As people encroach into natural habitats, and as conservation efforts restore wildlife to areas where they may have been absent for generations, contact between people and wild animals is growing. Some species, even the beautiful and endangered, can have serious impacts on human lives and livelihoods. Tigers kill people, elephants destroy crops and African wild dogs devastate sheep herds left unattended. Historically, people have responded to these threats by killing wildlife wherever possible, and this has led to the endangerment of many species that are difficult neighbours. The urgent need to conserve such species, however, demands coexistence of people and endangered wildlife. This book presents a variety of solutions to human-wildlife conflicts, including novel and traditional farming practices, offsetting the costs of wildlife damage through hunting and tourism, and the development of local and national policies.

Johnny Kingdom is the English countryside made flesh. He has lived his whole life on Exmoor, from his childhood catching moles to sell their skins, to his early wild days of adventure as a poacher, to today, when the demands of wildlife photography make extraordinary patience rather more useful than the ability to run fast... He embodies a way of life that may soon be gone for ever. His life story is both highly entertaining and completely enchanting. In Johnny Kingdom - A Wild Life on Exmoor, we see how integral the both the landscape and the creatures of Exmoor have been to Johnny's often hair-raising life story. When a horrific accident made him change his lifestyle and seek less physically demanding work, Johnny found solace in wildlife photography and has never looked back. His book is full of hilarious and captivating stories of his escapades, from how he spent the night in a jail cell with a red deer, to how he persuaded the local badger population to run along a mini assault course, turning wheels and tilting up and down on see-saws. Johnny is a wonderfully charismatic raconteur. This amazing book and new ITV series are already conferring on him the title of national treasure.
