  • DISAPPEARING GIANTS: The North Atlantic Right Whale
    DISAPPEARING GIANTS: The North Atlantic… by Scott D Kraus, Kenneth Mallory
    The North Atlantic Right Whale is the most endangered large whale in the oceans today. Fewer tha 350 are left in their breeding and feeding grounds, which extends from Nova Scotia to the Gulf of Mexico. For over 900 years whalers from Europe and the Americas have hunted almost to extinction. By 1935 some scientists suspected that there were fewer than 100 left in the North Atlantic Ocean. This book describes and illustrates an ongoing story of science and rediscovery, of survival and protection and of research, without which we cannot hope to protect the Right Whale's habitat in the Atlantic.

  • Ice Bear: A Natural and Unnatural History of the Polar Bear
    Ice Bear: A Natural and Unnatural… by Kieran Mulvaney

    Ice Bear is the definitive account of an iconic species: its life, its past, and its uncertain future. These beautiful bears are creatures of paradox: Arctic residents whose major problem is not staying warm, but keeping cool. They begin life in a snowdrift; at birth they weigh just twenty ounces. Fully grown, they become massive predators that can walk almost silently, ten feet in length and close to 2,000 pounds. Wandering thousands of miles over the course of a year, they are, above all, creatures of the ice. Without sea ice and the life it supports, polar bears cannot survive. Colour plates, 251pp. 2012
