About this book

Based on the famed French explorer's film series, Jean-Michel Cousteau: Ocean Adventures, these are the definitive guides to America's 13 National Marine Sanctuaries and Marine National Monuments. Each installment conducts a grand adventure through each of the four regions of the National Marine Sanctuary system, combining engaging descriptions, stunning photography, and behind-the-scenes stories from the Ocean Futures Society expedition team.

Intelligent inquiries into the health of the world's oceans are provided along with an overview of several incredible underwater treasures. Conveying the beauty of the ocean and the specific measures being put into effect to preserve it, this inspirational collection also features detailed, practical information for planning visits to the sanctuaries.

Included in Explore the Northeast National Marine Sanctuaries with Jean-Michel Cousteau are the sanctuaries of Thunder Bay, Stellwagen Bank, and Monitor – the resting place of the Civil War vessel. Filled with color photographs, revealing commentary by Jean-Michel and his team, and accessible science, this book is an invaluable tool for understanding the importance of the Sanctuaries and their role in protecting our ocean resources.
