More about this book
A close up look at these much loved creatures; their habits, their relationship with man and their environment.
Perhaps no other sea creature captivates and delights as much as dolphins. They have been intertwined with humans in culture, myth and folklore throughout recorded history. They are highly evolved and social animals, communicating with each other through their own ‘language’ of clicks and whistles, engaging in elaborate courting rituals and playing games of their own invention. Through an entertaining text and outstanding photography, Jonathan Bird gives an insight into the underwater world of these fascinating creatures. He also tells how, though pollution and man’s greed, their very existence is threatened.
