About this book

Focuses on whale watching in Baja California, but also devotes a great deal of space to speciation and evolution, the diversity of life, the role of politics and science in the treatment of animal populations, and the ethical and moral dilemmas that face us as we contemplate the possible sentience of non-human animals.
