Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jodell Sadler
Saving Wildlife: Ocean Animals is an informational guide that explains, in detail, the ocean habitat and the animals that live there. This well-researched nonfiction book is broken into manageable segments. There is a two-spread map of the world that shows all the oceans. It also explains how this habitat is being destroyed. Beautiful photographs bring the animals that live there up close. These animals include whales, "Whales are the largest and most impressive creatures on Earth, but some of these ocean giants may soon be extinct because of hunting and other human activities." The ocean is home to dolphins and porpoises. Land creatures that must live near the water are seals, dugongs, and sea otters. Of course, the ocean would not be nearly as exciting without the discussion of the shark. It seems that little could harm this most feared creatures but human activities are endangering these top ocean hunters. "Shellfish have their skeletons on the outside as a hard shell." Shellfish are even being hunted for food by people and the loss of habitat and pollution are affecting their survival. The reader understands the balance of nature and how each works to affect, positively or negatively, the survival of these animals. This is a very good resource for those just beginning to understand and research endangered animals. There is a section in the back "What Can We Do?" that includes organizations that are helping and where to contact them on the Internet. There is also a detailed glossary. Reviewer: Jodell Sadler
