Rupununi: Rediscovering a Lost World
Guyana's northern Rupununi — one of the last great wilderness areas on the planet — is a biological treasure trove with a level of species richness on par with that of western Amazonia.
Biologist Graham Watkins and award-winning photographers Pete Oxford and Renee Bish have created an engaging and colorful portrait of the Rupununi. The informative text and accompanying photographs detail the geology, biodiversity, and people; provide an understanding of the values of the area; and underline compelling reasons to ensure the conservation of this unique place in a rapidly changing world.
