This book is the outcome of a 5 year-long project supported by the Bale Mountains National Park, the Ethiopian Government, the Frankfurt Zoological Society and other partners from Ethiopia, France and the USA.
The book has a double goal : to reveal the beauty of these magnificent mountains, and to put forward the work of those who are contributing to the protection of the Bale Mountains. Photography, poetic prose and scientific information unveil an outstanding biodiversity hotspot, and one of the most unexplored areas of our planet (2009, 168 pp, publisher: Berger).
