About this title


Biologists contend that a rough triangle drawn from the Philippines to the western tip of New Guinea to the island of Bali and back encloses the richest concentration of coral reef species in the world. Into the very center of this teeming diversity of marine life - more than 3,000 species of fish, an amazing 75 genera of reef-building corals - reaches the crooked arm of Sulawesi's northern peninsula.
With its rugged coastline and odd tangle of peninsulas, the Indonesian island of Sulawesi looks itself like a rare sea creature washed ashore. The island, famous in colonial days as The Celebes, harbors a remarkable variety of marine habitats.
In the warm waters along the tip of North Sulawesi, which splits the Sulawesi and Maluku Seas, all of these habitats can be found in close proximity. Here is where photographer Mike Severns and biologist Pauline Fiene-Severns have spent the last 7 years exploring.
Here are creatures rare and common, elegant and ugly, and sometimes frankly bizarre. But all 150 full-color photographs and captions in Sulawesi Seas speak eloquently of the fragile and compelling beauty of Sulawesi's rich tropical waters.


"Stunning underwater photographs from the reefs of the north tip of Sulawesi that inspire superlatives. This is one of the most beautiful books I have had the privilege to examine. Everything about the photos is perfect."
