Marine Mammals of British Columbia includes maps of sightings, and pointers on where to find each species in British Columbia waters. It also contains hundreds of colour photographs and drawings to help recognize these animals in the ocean. This is an indispensable field guide and reference book for naturalists, boaters and anyone interested in marine life.
