'Life Upside Down': Flying foxes star in new children's book
Wildlife photographer and AP contributor Doug Gimesy has launched a new children's book - Life Upside Down.
The photographic book is aimed at teaching children about the Australian grey-headed flying fox, and has been produced with award-winning media graphic artist Heather Kiley.
Each page of the book showcases facts about the upside down creatures, detailing their habitat, behaviours and ways people can get involved in their protection and conservation. The educational content of the book is brought to life by the mages, which shed light on the mannerisms and character of the foxes.
Both authors are passionate conservationists. As well as contributing to AP, Doug Gimesy is an associate fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers and his photos have made it into the likes of National Geographic, Australian Geographic, BBC Wildlife and The New York Times.
Heather Kiley has a Bachelor of Environmental Science, and an Honours degree centred on Conservation Psychology, as well as a post-graduate qualification in Antarctic Studies.
Life Upside Down is available for purchase from Australian Geographic here, as well as other online retailers, and will set you back $19.95 AUD.
