About this book

The Caribbean monk seal was once a thriving and significant part of the tropical marine ecosystem of Florida, the Caribbean, and the Gulf of Mexico. Today, it is believed extinct. John Hairr relates the history and fate of this fascinating and charismatic marine mammal, showing the reciprocal impact between man and seal. This story does not end happily, but it gives us good reason not to procrastinate in conservation efforts for other endangered species.
