'Turn the pages to revel in the techno-tracking that is revealing the secrets of animal lives. This is science at its best, the art of understanding truth and beauty' Chris Packham

Once tracking animals meant following footprints. Now satellites, drones, camera traps, cellphone networks, apps and accelerometers allow us to see the natural world as never before. For the first time, this book lets you follow the journeys of seals, sharks, elephants, bumble bees, owls and wolves all over the world. Open it, and go where the animals go.

'This is a special kind of detective story' New Scientist

'This book is beautiful as well as informative and inspiring. There is no doubt it will help in our fight to save wildlife and wild habitats' Dr Jane Goodall

'Beautiful and thrilling ... a joy to study cover to cover' E. O. Wilson

James Cheshire and Oliver Uberti's complementary skills enable them to produce graphics and book pages that few others can match. As a lecturer at University College London, James applies his cartographic and programming skills to the staggering amount of data that scientists are now collecting. In 2017, he was awarded the Royal Geographical Society's Cuthbert Peek Award in recognition of his work 'advancing geographical knowledge through the use of mappable Big Data'. Oliver has more than a decade of experience visualizing and writing about wildlife research-from 2003 to 2012, he worked in the design department of National Geographic, most recently as Senior Design Editor.
