About this book

Tells the life histories of each of these species, as well as describing the islands on which they live and outlining the efforts being made to conserve them. It also looks at the history of human involvement in Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean - whaling, sealing, long-line fishing for tuna and Patagonian toothfish, trawling, and the impact of feral animals - and reveals what life is like for researchers on the islands today.
