First Paragraph

Sylvia Earle’s Sea Change: A Message of the Oceans serves as a clarion call to take a closer look at the life blood of planet earth, the oceans. The thoughtful mixture of wonder and concern outlines Earle’s years of study and thousands of hours working, playing, and living beneath the ocean’s surface. Earle intersperses tales of discovery and enlightenment with easy to read discussions of biology, engineering, law, and policy, to weave a tale advocating better stewardship of our ocean resources. A biologist by formal training and explorer by natural curiosity, Earle reminds us of what we learned in elementary school, that water covers most of the planet.
