Book of the Month: Encyclopedia of Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises

 

"In the beautifully illustrated Encyclopedia of Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises, award-winning author and whale researcher Erich Hoyt takes readers into the field for an intimate encounter with the roughly 90 species of cetaceans that live in the world’s oceans…. His impassioned argument for the ongoing need for international protection of at-risk populations and their increasingly damaged habitat is impossible to ignore." 

— Canadian Geographic

Our book of the month for January 2018 is Encyclopedia of Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises by award-winning author and whale researcher Erich Hoyt.

This stunning book is filled with insightful stories about whale and dolphin biology and behaviour, the latest data on cetacean research, and spectacular images of these amazing marine mammals in their natural habitat.

Hoyt says he wrote the book “for anyone who wants to know more about these extraordinary, intelligent social mammals.” With Blue Planet II airing in North America in late January, Encyclopedia of Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises is the perfect companion book to get you excited about the remarkable world of ocean life.
