Description - Seasick by Alanna Mitchell

It is a disturbing reality that many people believe the oceans of our planet are largely devoid of life and ecological significance. Where in fact the oceans are the great unexamined ecological crisis of our planet. Globally they 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 to 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. As go the oceans, so goes the planet . . .
