Explores America's twelve marine sanctuaries, from the relics of lost ships at Monitor Marine Sanctuary in North Carolina to the huge underwater cliffs in Monterey Bay, California

Simon and Schuster
Discover the best kept secrets of our natural heritage, the 12 national sanctuaries created to safeguard pristine marine environments, protect precious oceanic species and historic sites, and provide a dramatic, unforgettably magical realm beneath the waves. From New England's Stellwagen Bank to the Channel Islands of Southern California, from Florida's vivid coral reefs to the craggy coast of the Pacific Northwest, and on to Hawaii and American Samoa, Wild Ocean is a submarine voyage of discovery that will take you places few Americans have ever been, with a world-renowned marine scientist and a gifted underwater photographer and their colleagues as your guides. Sea otters, manatees, and majestic whales...an underwater canyon...reefs alive with manta rays, parrotfish, and sharks...a sunken Civil War ironclad -- Wild Ocean offers all these seldom-seen treasures and much, much more, in an endlessly informative, visually arresting tour of America's undersea preserves.
