Editorial Reviews

Ellen Mandel
In alerting readers to the dangers facing the animals and plants of our country's oceans and coasts, this intelligent study focuses briefly on individual species and regions. Indexed for easy access to its wealth of facts, the book examines why populations are endangered and spotlights efforts to counter their decline. Urging readers to get involved in nature's recovery, the author offers a variety of ideas for action, from taking trips to observe puffins or whales, to sponsoring fund-raising efforts, to writing to the provided addresses for additional information about organizations around the world and their conservation programs. Since all waters eventually flow into the oceans, the book encourages young people who live inland to adopt and monitor the health of a section of a local river or stream, reporting any decline in species to their local fish and wildlife agency. Young activists will be grateful for the encouragement, while researchers will welcome the book's interestingly presented background and up-to-date information.
