DOLPHIN BOOK by Maddalena Bearzi, OCS President !!!
"This is a delightful chronicle of a young ocean lover's journey to turn her passion into a career in science, and that scientist's coming-of-age as she observes an ocean changing around her and the creatures she has come to love and defend. I found it both relaxing and energizing, all at the same time." - Carl Safina, author of Song for the Blue Ocean

By Charles Saylan, OCS Executive Director, and Daniel T. Blumstein, OCS Scientific Advisor

This book will help us understand why we are headed toward the collapse of civilization, and more important, how to fix it. Packed with sound science, useful information, and brilliant ideas, it is a book we must read, and give, to our local school boards and principals nationwide. Our children will thank us." - Paul R.
