Imagine a world where the beach is no longer a place to visit, and the ocean a place that is too poisonous to swim in. It may sound like the plot line of a dystopian chapter book, but every day we get closer to it becoming reality. This essential volume digs into the many ways that life depends on our oceans to survive. Bright photographs and astonishing case studies engage the reader in learning the science behind our ocean's health and how it is being compromised. This environmental science book excites and empowers readers to help reverse the toxicity in our oceans before it is too late.
