This unique tie-in to the major motion picture Oceans—coming this April from Disney & National Geographic—explores the health of our oceans, and what we can do to improve it.

More than 75 percent of the globe is covered by the oceans. It is sometimes difficult to understand why it is called Planet Earth rather than Planet Ocean. Since half the world’s human population lives within a stone’s throw of an ocean coastline, the oceans’ health is increasingly important. Rich with resources and potential—as a source of renewable energy, new drugs, drinking water—for years we have treated them as both infinite and undamageable. But they are not.

Over-fishing, climate change, pollution, acidification, and more have put the world’s oceans and marine life at great risk.

Oceans gathers some of the most insightful visionaries, explorers, and ocean lovers— marine biologists, politicians, environmentalists, fishermen, sportsmen, deep divers, and more—in a unique anthology, in which each speaks to a unique aspect of our world’s most dimly understood dimension.

  • Entertaining and Enlightening
    From Amazon

    Thirty-one essays by as many authors in 300 pages. A bargain for the price. This is a very entertaining book as well as being informative. The authors are all experts in their respective fields and darned good writers too. You will enjoy the many different approaches to the general topic of "oceans" and their inhabitants and learn a lot too. This book has avoided (mostly) the all-too common hectoring style of writers who have an agenda and try to make their readers feel guilty for matters beyond their control. It's a book to keep handy to dip into when you have a few minutes to spare. Strongly recommended for all ages from teenagers and up.
