With a foreword by Sir David Attenborough, this is the striking photographic companion to the Emmy–winning NETFLIX original documentary series, presenting never-before-seen visuals of nature’s most intriguing animals in action and the environmental change that has to be seen to be believed.With six hundred members of crew filming in fifty countries over four years, the directors that brought us the original Planet Earth and Blue Planet now take readers on a journey across all the globe’s different biological realms to present stunning visuals of nature’s most intriguing animals in action, and environmental change on a scale that must be seen to be believed.

With a keepsake package featuring debossing and foil stamping, this groundbreaking coffee-table book reveals the most amazing sights on Earth in unprecedented ways.
