Wildlife of Planet Earth

Most information in the images is repeated in the text, except some features of the maps.

Two-thirds ocean, one-third land. Variety of natural habitats with a lot of damage from the indigenous, human civilisation.

Planet Earth orbits a stable star at a relatively consistent distance. This produces surface temperatures that vary between approximately -20 and 40 degrees Celcius.

Water is an important resource, varying between solid (known as ice) and liquid form. Most of the known lifeforms on earth are completely reliant on water. Solid water floats on liquid water: for this reason life is able to survive in the oceans and lakes without being crushed by ice.

A year on earth is the time it takes to orbit once around the sun. The rotational axis is slightly tilted in its orbit: This causes seasonal fluctuations in climate because the sun better heats either the northern or southern hemisphere at different times of year. The indigenous population of humans call the warmest season summer and the coldest season winter. These annual changes cause some of the greatest wildlife spectacles as large numbers of animals move to avoid temperatures that are too hot or too cold for their survival.

16 Wildlife Travel Guides

This website has approximately one-quarter of my wildlife writing. The rest can be found in my Wildlife Travel Guides. Published as eBooks, they have the same articles as are on this website. They also have the smaller-scale site descriptions with extra maps, photographs and GPS coordinates. They also contain self-guided walks, illustrated wildlife-watching activities, general wildlife-watching articles and wildlife lists. An additional benefit of buying the eBooks is that you can read them without requiring an internet connection.
