HOTSPOTS, Earth’s Biologically Richest and Endangered Terrestrial Ecoregions

Considered one of the “Top 40 Wildlife Classics” of the past century by the BBC Wildlife Magazine, Hotspots was the result of a three year research and analysis. The project involved more than 100 specialists and portrays more than 350 images from renowned photographers.
The bottom line of the Hotspots strategy is to focus limited human and financial resources to the conservation of these rich and endangered pieces of land, in which 60% of all terrestrial living species known, exist.
