Field Guide to Marine Mammals of the Pacific Coast

About this book

From gray whales giving birth in the lagoons of Baja California to sea otters nestled in kelp beds off California and killer whales living around Vancouver Island in Canada, this spectacular stretch of the Pacific Coast boasts one of the most abundant populations of sea mammals on earth.

This field guide describes the 45 whales, dolphins, seals and otters that are resident in, migrate through, or forage from Baja in Mexico to British Columbia in Canada. The book provides details on identification, natural history, distribution and conservation and also offers hints for where and how these fascinating animals can best be viewed.

Handy, [with] rich species accounts... A must have for anyone interested in marine mammals!--The Guardian "For the person who enjoys watching the creatures that inhabit our coastline, the mariner who might travel with pods of whales, or the beachcomber who shares the sand with seals and sea lions, this is a field guide that should be tucked into every day pack or sea bag."--North County Times "An excellent compact reference book ... you won't have any problem identifying the many mammals you encounter along the coastline or off shore."--Salinas Californian "This field guide is a 'must have'."--Wildlife Activist "Like an expert, chatty companion at one's elbow, this is a splendid guide to the subject for both amateurs and professionals."--Choice
