Now you can hold these fascinating stories in your hands, in The Wilderness Society's very own nature book, a celebration of nature, science, culture and art. 

Through rivers, deserts and rainforests, find stories and pictures of whales, koalas and giant dragonflies. There's the record-breaking run from the top of the continent to the bottom, the search for the elusive night parrot, moments from the campaign to save the Franklin, the hunt for mythic chanterelle mushrooms, and more besides.


The Wilderness Journal team worked once again with esteemed book designer Stuart Geddes and Rachel Knepfer, shaping the material into something classical and beautifully unexpected, with the very lightest footprint.

Contributors include Andrew Cowen, Ben Baker, Bunna Lawrie, Emma Balfour, Ingvar Kenne, Matthew Stanton, Michaela Skovranova, Paul McNeil, Renee Saxby, Robert Moore, Sophie Cunningham. 

We thank the brilliant and generous contributors to Wilderness Journal, some of the world’s finest photographers, scientists, artists, illustrators and writers - all of whom have given their time and their talents as a force for protecting nature.
