Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-7-A close look at programs devised to protect some unique New Zealand species effected by human endeavors and coastal development. With clear, full-color photos (many full page), Mallory's text is both readable and informative, and includes such extras as excerpts from a wildlife rehabilitator's journal. The projects range from a strictly scientific study of the daily patterns of some rare Hector's dolphins to allow minimal friction between the marine mammals and commercial/recreational fishermen; through a scientific/ecotourism effort to restore coastal habitat and provide safe nesting areas for the threatened yellow-eyed penguin; to a strictly grassroots venture into rehabilitating sick and injured seabirds with a focus on little blue penguins. A glossary and a short list for further reading complete this lucid exposition of a diverse sampling of conservation efforts. All in all, this reassuring book comforts readers with the knowledge that even half a world away, people are working together to protect and nurture the extraordinary flowering of biodiversity that makes our Spaceship Earth unique among discovered planets.

From Booklist

Gr. 5^-8. The latest title in the New England Aquarium series focuses on successful efforts in New Zealand to protect endangered coastal wildlife in areas of increased commercial, residential, and recreational development. Mallory discusses conservation biologist Greg Stone's research on Hector's dolphins, ecotourism, and yellow-eyed penguins at Howard McGrouther's Penguin Place preserve as well as Vivian Hexall's work to protect little blue penguins and other marine animals. Mallory clearly explains the particular problems facing each species and how researchers are attempting to resolve them. Attractive full-color photographs depict the work of the conservationists described in the text and the habits of their wild subjects. A valuable resource for students of wildlife conservation or those interested in the effects of diminishing natural habitats. Glossary; brief bibliography. Chris Sherman

a great book, as I am a long time volunteer for the rescue/rehab dept, I might be a little biased 😉
