Baja's Wild Side


A Photographic Journey Through Baja California’s Pacific Coast Region

Daniel Cartamil, PhD



‘Baja’s Wild Side’ features the photography and stories of shark biologist Dr. Daniel Cartamil as he explores Baja California’s Pacific Coast Region. Packed with over 100 breathtaking images, this book chronicles a fragile paradise of remote landscapes, wildlife, and cultural treasures on the verge of being overtaken by modern civilization. From the high sierra, to ancient cave paintings hidden deep in the desert, to the surf-pounded Pacific, readers will discover Baja’s little-known “Wild Side.”
