Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8–Hoyt examines the impact of commercial whaling on global whale populations and the efforts being made by scientists, environmentalists, and some governments to protect these endangered mammals. Crisp, color photos portray these leviathans in their natural habitat and also show scientists hard at work on cetacean projects, whaling ships and their harvest on the high seas, and seagoing environmentalists in action. The brisk, somewhat fragmented text presents whale data from songs to reproduction, from migratory patterns to feeding behaviors. It briefly focuses on the efforts of a variety of identified persons or organizations endeavoring to bring whales back from the brink, among them Richard Sears's pioneer work with blue whales, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's controversial actions, and Charles Mayo's valiant efforts to free whales entangled in fishing lines and nets off the coast of Cape Cod. Despite its quick glimpses of action, this is a serviceable overview of 40 years of conservation efforts.–Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY

From Booklist

Gr. 4-6. "Will whales be a healthy part of the world in 100 years?" In this solid entry in the Animal Rescue series, Hoyt explains that the answer depends on how governments and conservation groups continue efforts to protect the "giants of the sea." The organization is a bit scattered. Profiles of whale researchers intermix with spreads about whale habits and their complex relationship with humans (also depicted in a time line), including accounts of hunting and poaching and efforts to preserve and establish sanctuaries. But despite the somewhat disorganized order of chapters, the language is succinct and straightforward, and the color photos will thrill whale lovers. A final page of fast facts will please students, who will find plenty of fodder for reports or personal interest. Gillian Engberg
