In more iLCP News, Fellows Patricio Robles Gil and Igor Shpilenok have just released a beautiful new book. Kamchatka: Wilderness at the Edge, published by Agrupacion Sierra Madre as part of their Voices from the Earth series features Igor's inspiring narrative on encounters with bears, Steller's sea-eagles, and his life in the wildlands of Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula -- one of the last true wilderness areas on Earth. The book is interspersed with spectacular photos of wildlife by both Igor and Patricio. The book comes in a lovely hard-cover gift box and is available through the WILD Foundation webstore.
