About this title:

Synopsis:

Whale Rescue is the latest addition to the acclaimed Firefly Animal Rescue series. Written by an accomplished expert and illustrated with color photographs, this book is a solid reference on both whales and the ongoing efforts to protect them.

This book covers whale physiology, diet, lifespan, complex behaviors and habitats. Specific whale species covered in detail are:

  • Gray whales
  • Humpback whales
  • Blue whales
  • Sperm whales
  • Right whales
  • Orca whales.

Whale conservationists and their efforts to protect whale populations are profiled. Also addressed are the pros and cons of extreme measures used against illegal whalers, such as ramming whaling boats and destroying fishnets. A full list of organizations dedicated to protecting whales is provided for readers who want to help.

About the Firefly Animal Rescue series:

The Firefly Animal Rescue identifies endangered and threatened species and what is being done to protect them. Combining lively, accessible text and stunning color photographs, each book provides a detailed overview of the species, describing its characteristics, behavior, habits, physiology and more.

"These attractive books are a call to action... fascinating readable accounts."
- School Library Journal

"Succinct introductions to the science and practice of wildlife conservation... written in accessible, lively language."
- Booklist
