World Ocean Census Book Released

Firefly Books recently released World Ocean Census: A Global Survey of Marine Life. This beautifully illustrated 256-page book tells the amazing inside story of the Census of Marine Life. Written by Census Education & Outreach Team members Darlene Crist, Gail Scowcroft, and James Harding, with a foreword written by Sylvia Earle, the book highlights the stories behind the Census through lively text and over 250 images, the majority graciously provided by Census scientists. The volume’s chapters give insight into the human side of research and set the stage for the release of the first Census of Marine Life in 2010.
