Heather Angel's latest book – Exploring Natural China is just out. Covering specific locations, each with a map, it highlights the key animal and plant species – from Siberian tigers in the frigid north-east and rare gibbons in a southern rainforest, to pink dolphins in Hong Kong, vast lotus lily lakes and glorious alpine flowers in Yunnan sought after by the plant hunters. A special section: Back from the brink, highlights five species where special efforts are being made to boost the sparse remaining populations by means of captive breeding.

These images are just a small selection of the extremely broad range of stock Natural Visions now holds of the flora and fauna of China's wilderness areas – no doubt one of the most comprehensive in the UK. Heather is constantly adding to this collection, which includes a vast panda file.
