About this book

This long-overdue book provides a comprehensive guide to the terrestrial and marine mammals of Prince Edward Island (PEI), Canada. Rooted in historical accounts and local research, Mammals of Prince Edward Island and Adjacent Marine Waters illuminates the lives of PEI mammals large and small. From the Little Brown Bat to Sowerby's Beaked Whale, this book highlights each species in illustrated detail and outlines the continued need for conservation efforts.

No other Canadian province has lost such a large proportion of its mammal species due to the conversion from a forested to a predominantly agricultural landscape. In the 20th century, many marine mammals were so rare due to prior centuries of human exploitation that any sightings or strandings on PEI were recorded. Reforestation and the continued efforts of local wildlife and conservation agencies, along with the use of new and refined study techniques on land and in the sea, continue to improve our ability to understand and protect the native mammals of PEI.
