Supported by stunning photographs [by] various talented photographers, Whale Rescue tells of the work of the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society... [It] is an optimistic story of contributions people can make to saving endangered species. It would be of particular interest to environmental sciences classes and anyone interested in saving endangered animals. It is a valuable addition to nature library sections.
