By Tim Flannery
Twenty-five years in the past, a tender Australian museum curator named Tim Flannery got down to learn the fauna of the Pacific Islands. beginning with a survey of 1 of the main inaccessible islands in Melanesia, the younger scientist came upon himself ghost whispering, snake wrestling and Quadoi looking looking for a small bat that became out to not be earthshatteringly interesting.
With debts of learning, naming and infrequently consuming new mammal species; being thwarted or aided by means of neighborhood customs; and old clinical expeditions, Flannery, now one of many world’s most sensible environmentalists, takes us on a charming trip via probably the most various and astounding areas on the earth.
