"Wildlife" is the second collaboration between Anthony Phillips and Joji Hirota. The album is culled from recordings made between 1994 and 2000 when Anthony and Joji collaborated on a number of soundtracks for wildlife television programmes in the British "Survival" series. In addition, Anthony also wrote and recorded the music for a programme in the BBC series "Natural World".

"Wildlife" features selections from the music for the programmes "Creatures of the Magic Water" (tracks 1-6), "Secrets of the Amazon" (tracks 7-11), "Jaguar: Eater of Souls" (tracks 12-13), "Serengeti Jigsaw" (tracks 14-15), "Web of the Spider Monkey" (track 16), "Dungeons & Dragons" (tracks 17-22), "Secrets of a Norfolk Wood" (tracks 23-25), "Bears of the Russian Front" (tracks 26-30), "Gremlins: Faces in the Forest" (track 31), "Jurassic Shark" (tracks 32-38), and "Midway - Island of Life" (tracks 39-45).

All programmes represented come from the "Survival" series except "Midway - Island of Life" which comes from "Natural World".

Several of the "Survival" programmes were filmed by the late Nick Gordon and the sleeve notes for the album include Ant's specially written tribute to Nick.

"Wildife" was released in Japan by Disk Union on Arcangelo Records and by Voiceprint Records for the Rest of the World. The Japanese release was in a limited edition mini-vinyl sleeve.
