The world is becoming more crowded. Human impact on the planet has meant extinction for many animals, and more are endangered each day. The Science of Saving Animals is a series of books about people saving the world's wildlife -- people making a difference through action and education.
Marine mammals are worldwide favorites, from furry adorable sea otters to enormous blue whales, the largest animal that ever lived on Earth. They're endangered because of man-made pollution, habitat destruction, and shipping traffic. But instead of letting sea lions die from garbage that traps them or manatees be run down by boats, people who care -- scientists, government agencies, volunteers, and others -- are making a difference. In Marine Mammal Preservation you'll read about how they're tracking down offenders and saving lives.
