The Great Barrier Reef Book : Solar Powered
by Dr Mark Norman
This beautifully presented book takes a look inside one of the natural wonders of the world, introducing young readers to some of the wondrous creatures that live within it. It likens the reef to a gigantic forest powered by the sun and teeming with life, a biodiversity that is sadly threatened by global warming. The book offers many suggestions on what each of us can do to help prevent this. Dr Mark Norman is the head of Science at the Melbourne Museum and a world expert of octopuses, squids and cuttlefish.
