This book is a key conservation tool and a springboard for worldwide change in human attitudes towards the world's oceans, where all life originated and where the majority of life on Earth still lives. The widely praised first edition, published in 2005, led to numerous new marine protected area proposals and a number of notable conservation successes around the world. In this completely revised and expanded second edition, new developments in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and Pacific are described, as well as future directions for High Seas protection. New sections show how to design and manage MPAs in an ever noisier ocean that is subject to climate change, increased shipping and oil exploration. The process of protected area creation for cetaceans has been accelerated and more than 200 exciting new places are detailed in this edition. This book provides a route map for MPA managers, as well as countries, to meet the ambitious targets for highly protected MPA networks by 2012 and 2020.

"In this richly updated and comprehensive volume, Erich Hoyt combines a sense of urgency about the need for action with a clear message of hope. Protecting areas in the sea to give marine mammals a better chance for survival benefits all life on Earth, including humans. As never before, the connections are clear. Never again will there be a better time to act for the sake of cetaceans - and primates, too." -- Sylvia A. Earle, oceanographer, National Geographic explorer-in-residence, Mission Blue founder
"Erich Hoyt's book provides comprehensive and irreplaceable insight into marine protected areas dedicated to marine mammals -- these animais that are so close and dear to us. It shows us how to harmonize mankind and the sea more effectively to enable human development and nature preservation to progress side by side at a similar pace." -- H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco
"Essential reading as the protected area system around the world rapidly expands. Planning and managing for the wellbeing of marine mammals is essential for all protected area managers."
-- Carl Gustaf Lundin, Head, IUCN Global Marine and Polar Programme
"The world's oceans face numerous threats and there is strong scientific consensus that marine protected areas are a key solution. This book is a valuable contribution to understanding the successes, opportunities and challenges we face as we strive to conserve the oceans, the creatures that live in them and the important role they play in supporting human health, food and economies." - David Suzuki
"Renowned writer and leading authority on whale watching Erich Hoyt takes us on a fascinating journey across the complex and uncharted world of protected areas for cetaceans. This highly informative book will become a source of inspiration and understanding for the decision-maker as well as for the lay person, and an exhaustive repository of information and references for the specialist." -- Giuseppe Notarbartolo di Sciara
