From the dust jacket:

In Last Chance to See, and the accompanying major BBC television series, we follow the unlikely due on six separate journeys which take them from the steamy jungles of the Amazon to the ice-covered mountain tops of New Zealand and from the edge of a war zone in Central Africa to a sub-tropical paradise in the North Pacific.
