Description - Act III in Patagonia by William E. Conway

The first book to take an in-depth look at wildlife and human interaction in this spectacular area of the world. It is unique in its concentration on the long Patagonian shoreline--populated by colourful cormorants, penguins, elephant seals, dolphins, sea lions, and numerous species of whale--and an increasing number of human beings. Threatened by overfishing, invasive species, artificially abundant predators, and overgrazing, the Southern Cone of Patagonia is now the scene of a little-known conservation drama distinguished by the efforts of a dedicated group of local and foreign scientists determined to save one of the Earth's least-inhabited places.
