This African Wildlife 2013 Calendar, published by the Yale Peabody Museum, features stunning full-color photography of some of the many species that can still be seen in their African habitats.
Africa is a vast continent of nearly 12 million square miles (around 30 million square kilometers), more than three times the size of the United States. It forms one of the world’s great biogeographic regions, an extraordinary evolutionary engine that has been churning out species for many millions of years. There are a greater variety of species in Africa than anywhere else on the planet.
Each photograph is accompanied by an identifying caption that gives the common and scientific names of each animal, as well as the conservation status of each as ranked by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources Red List of Threatened Species.
Your purchase directly supports the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History’s mission of educational outreach and public programs.
