Summary

An illustrated introduction to the world's oceans, their different habitats, their flora and fauna, and how humans have explored, used and abused the seas.

Dive in and explore forgotten shipwrecks, swim with fabulous fish and other awesome underwater animals, and weave your way through secret deep sea homes. You'll travel back in time to meet plundering pirates, scientists, and explorers who changed the course of history, then it's time to learn about lots of very important underwater jobs and how you can help to protect Earth's precious oceans.
