The Hidden Ecological Crisis of the Global Ocean
By (author) Alanna Mitchell
Seasick by Alanna Mitchell
Book DescriptionGlobally the oceans cover 71 per cent of the planet's surface and contain 90 per cent of the mass of life on Earth. While tremendous attention and money have been invested in saving the ecosystems of our land animals and plants, the gradual deterioration of ocean life has been happening in secret. Scientists are just beginning to piece together the growing crisis beneath the waves and its implications for future life on this planet. Seasick is the first book to take the scattered pieces of this scientific puzzle and bring them into a cohesive story. It will change the way people understand the global ocean and its importance to all life on earth.
