Michael Donoghue & Annie Wheeler

This important and timely book celebrates the beauty and wonder of the world's dolphins and small whales, and makes a plea to save the many species that are acutely endangered.

It identifies and describes the threats currently facing these wise and gentle creatures, such as "wall of death" nets, purse-seining and even hunting or deliberate harassment by humans.

Also included is the story of how inshore habitats have become so polluted that, for example, the belugas of the St Lawrence Seaway have become sterile and are doomed to extinction. And dolphins are deliberately pursued and slaughtered around Japan, South America, and the Black Sea because they compete with commercially valued fish, and are used for food, fertiliser, or even crab bait.

From Asia and South America come accounts of the most endangered dolphins of all: small river-dwelling species like the Ganges River dolphin which are very restricted in distribution and now extremely rare because fo hunting and habitat destruction.

Many of the suburb colour photographs show dolphins swimming free and wild - while others provide irrefutable evidence of a major international conservation problem.

On a positive note, the book details initiatives for conservation from international organisations like Greenpeace, and protective measures being brought into place by coastal states, giving hope that our "friends in the sea" may have a brighter future.
