About this book

IUCN's marine team and colleagues, comprised of specialists from across the globe, have come together to inform and inspire the planet about marine conservation, and done so with flourish! With exquisite graphics, outstanding photographs and witty, down-to-earth stories, they have woven a canvas from which our conservation dreams, challenges and successes emerge.

This book highlights issues related to conservation of some of the most interesting and least understood creatures on earth. The authors hope that these compelling stories will inspire interest and instill concern to make the planet a better place for all.

Adrift peeks under the hem of the ocean, making very authoritative information on ocean animals highly accessible and easily understandable for anyone. You certainly don't need a PhD, but you'll sound like one at your next cocktail party. - Carl Safina, author of Song for the Blue Ocean and other books Blue Ocean Institute.
