Watching giants : the secret lives of whales by Elin Kelsey( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Personal, Anecdotal, and Highly engaging, Watching Giants opens a window on a world that seems quite like our own, yet is so different that understanding it pushes the very limits of our senses. Elin Kelsey's colorful first-person account, drawing from her rich, often humorous, everyday experiences as a mother, a woman, and a scientist, takes us to the incredibly productive waters of the Gulf of California and beyond, to oceans around the world. Kelsey brings us along as she talks to leading cetacean researchers and marine ecologists about their discoveries. We encounter humpback whales that build nets from bubbles, gain a disturbing maternal perspective on the dolphin-tuna issue, learn intimate details about whale sex, and contemplate the meaning of the complex social networks that exist in the seas. What emerges alongside these snapshots of whale culture is a dizzying sense of the tremendous speed with which we are changing the oceans' ecosystems - through overfishing, noise pollution, even real estate development. Watching Giants introduces a world of immense interconnectivity and beauty, and one that is now facing imminent peril."--Jacket
