In 1992 a tiny and virtually unheard of publishing firm based in Catalonia began on of the most ambitious projects in natural history: to publish a series of 16 high quality volumes that would illustrate and describe in detail every bird on the face of the planet! Nothing on this international scope had ever been attempted before. Today, the end of the landmark series THE HANDBOOK OF THE BIRDS OF THE WORLD is in sight, and Lynx Edicions is launching another equally ambitious and mind-blowing project: THE HANDBOOK OF THE MAMMALS OF THE WORLD. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with JOSEP DEL HOYO, Series Editor of the Handbooks, co-founder of Lynx Edicions and member of the Global Council of Birdlife International. Josep discusses how Lynx became such a force in conservation and environmental education around the world and what it takes to produce a truly state of the art natural history book.
