Dolphins by Jonathan Bird

Book Description

"Wildlife Monographs", a series of fabulous, full-colour books led by stunning photographic images with fresh, informative and vivid new text charting our favourite wild animals on their home terrain. The first eight volumes in the series track the lives of elephants, cheetahs, sharks, leopards, giant pandas, polar bears, penguins and monkeys of the Amazon. The spellbinding, intimate images captured by some of the worlds premier wildlife photographers breathe with vivid insight and a shared sense of being there, being closer than most of us can ever hope to be. With bright, easy to read and compelling text that successfully combines fascinating information with accessibility, these are books to give as gifts, to treasure and to share across every age from eight to eighty. Here's a glimpse of some of the worlds increasingly rare and endangered species, captured on camera in their natural habitats. If we aren't careful, they may not be there for much longer, and each volume is also a plea for protection, backed by leading campaigners. Dolphins, perhaps like no other sea creatures, captivate and delight we humans. They are highly evolved and social animals, communicating with each other through their own language of clicks and whistles and engaging in elaborate courtship rituals. Their obvious curiosity about the world around them even extends to humans, with whom they sometimes fraternize, if only for a few moments of entertainment but, unfortunately, this factor of their intelligence and ability to be trained has made them prime targets for exploitation. Add that to pollution and toxins that threaten their habitat and the practice in some cultures to kill them for food, dolphins, while not yet an endangered species, are nonetheless being continually threatened. With words and pictures Jonathan Bird tells of the history habits and folklore surrounding these fascinating creatures. This work features stunning full colour photography. It is presented with high gloss paperback with flaps and contains an engaging text.
