Product Description

Eternal Endemism The Kimberley: Endemic Frogs, Reptiles, Birds & Mammals


By Craig Ward with Ian Morris


This visually stunning book is a celebration of the unique wildlife found only within The Kimberley, Western Australia.  Endemic species are featured in full colour double page spreads, with subspecies and other notable animals included as short briefs.

In this book we showcase every endemic frog, reptile, bird and mammal found in The Kimberley, bringing up to date the list of unique animals of this region with a collection of full colour photographs never before assembled in a single volume. Recently described species are included as well as updates on the status of others, making this the most accurate and comprehensive listing in print.

The Kimberley is bordered cardinally by four striking features; to the west the Indian Ocean, to the north the Timor Sea, the south by the Great Sandy and Tanami Deserts and to the east the Northern Territory. It is a place of superlative natural beauty, a bio-diversity hot spot and a refuge for native plants and animals. The north-west Kimberley is the only place in Australia where no mammal extinctions have been recorded since European arrival.

The publication is a tribute to the photographers, biologists and folk who work there and a call to arms for conservation.
