Ocean WatchBook - 2001
We need to protect the world we live in -- for ourselves and future generations. What is going to happen to Planet Earth? This challenging new series draws attention to the most urgent environmental concerns-and suggests positive ways to prevent more damage. Ocean Watch explains the issues-from the threat of overfishing to storm damage and habitat destruction-and then suggests ways to help. Hands-on experiments show readers how to explore the science behind the facts, while action globes suggest ways to make a difference on a daily basis. To highlight what is already being done, eyewitness reports from professionals-including a marine biologist in Hawaii and a fisheries protection officer in Australia-describe how their work is improving the management of the planet. Lively text, written in clear, non-technical language, combines with stunning images to produce a dynamic series that not only draws attention to problems, but also suggests ways to protect our planet for the future.
