Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This unique tie-in to the major motion picture Oceans—coming this April from Disney & National Geographic—explores the health of our oceans, and what we can do to improve it.

More than 75 percent of the globe is covered by the oceans. It is sometimes difficult to understand why it is called Planet Earth rather than Planet Ocean. Since half the world’s human population lives within a stone’s throw of an ocean coastline, the oceans’ health is increasingly important. Rich with resources and potential—as a source of renewable energy, new drugs, drinking water—for years we have treated them as both infinite and undamageable. But they are not.

Over-fishing, climate change, pollution, acidification, and more have put the world’s oceans and marine life at great risk.

Oceans gathers some of the most insightful visionaries, explorers, and ocean lovers— marine biologists, politicians, environmentalists, fishermen, sportsmen, deep divers, and more—in a unique anthology, in which each speaks to a unique aspect of our world’s most dimly understood dimension.

Book News Annotation:

A companion book to the documentary film Oceans, this volume is meant to guide and inspire readers to get involved in preserving the oceans and taking action on issues presented in the film. Bowermaster, a filmmaker and author, brings together 31 interviews and contributions by marine biologists, writers, politicians, environmentalists, fishermen, sportsmen, actors, divers, and oceanographers, on ocean acidification, plastic in the oceans, the impact of climate change on coastal areas, sea life, policies, the link between communities and oceans, bioluminescence, the link between the neurosciences and marine biology, the making of the film, and other topics, as well as reminiscences like one writer's story of her solo rowing travels across the Atlantic and Pacific.
