Guide to Marine Mammals and Turtles of the U.S. Pacific

Guide to Marine Mammals and Turtles of the U.S. Pacific

This guide to marine mammals and sea turtles of Hawaii, California, Oregon, and Washington is ideal for use on boats, on beach walks, and in classrooms, offices, laboratories, and homes. The wire-o binding makes it easy to flip through the durable, waterproof pages and keep the book open to the desired page. Kate Wynne, leading marine mammal field biologist, describes species behavior, dive pattern, habitat, life history, and interactions with humans. She explains how to distinguish whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals, sea lions, sea otters, and sea turtles, and notes evolutionary adaptations for life in the sea. Each animal is represented by a color illustration by nature illustrator Garth Mix. Range maps show where the animals occur, and surface profile silhouettes are a great help for making positive identifications.
