A healthy ocean is home to many different kinds of animals. They can be big, like a whale, tiny, like a shrimp, and even scary, like a shark. Even though sharks can be scary, we need them to keep the oceans healthy. Unfortunately, due to overfishing, many shark species are in danger of extinction, and that can cause big problems in the oceans and even on land. What would happen if this continued and sharks disappeared completely? Artist Lily Williams explores how the disappearance would affect other animals across the whole planet in this clever book about the importance of keeping sharks, and our oceans, healthy.

The elephant has become synonymous with the image of African wildlife. They can grow over 10 feet tall and eat up to 300 pounds a day. While these giants are beloved figures in movies and zoos, they also play a large role in keeping the forest ecosystem healthy. Unfortunately, poachers are hunting elephants rapidly to extinction for their ivory tusks, and that could be catastrophic to the world as we know it.

Its predecessors, 999 Survived, Sun, Sand and Survival, and Down In the North, dealt with survival respectively in the Southwest pacific Tropics, in ther African Deserts, and in the Arctic. This study concerns survival at sea dn, like its predecessors, employs the topical approach. It is not a water survival manual, but is a factual report of what happened to men who bailed out or ditched at sea, and whose only refuge for days on end was a rubber lifeaft. Under such topical headings as bailout versus ditching, survival equipment, the lifeaft, food, hazards, injuries, morale, and many others, the experiences of the survivors themselves are emphasized. The result is a new and fresh insight into the problems of survival at sea which will eb of inteest to all those wh ofly over water, and of particular value to those concerned directly with rescue operations, with water survival training, and with the development of survival materiel.

Sharks in one form or another have inhabited our seas and oceans for more than 400 million years. They were here long before the dinosaurs and they witnessed the rise of our own species. Awe-inspiring, beautiful, mysterious, frightening. sharks have been described in many ways and provoke a mixture of feelings. But they never do less than excite and impress. story of these wonderful creatures from their early beginnings to their struggle for survival today. He describes their origins and ancestors, introduces the diversity of sharks, marvels at their perfectly designed bodies, explains how they reproduce, investigates their reputation as the ultimate killing machines and finds out how these little-known animals are being studied. He even reveals how and where to jump into the sea for a real-life close encounter with a wild shark. Of course, the fearsome reputation of sharks travels before them. But how much truth is there in the fishermen's tales that have circulated for centuries? Mark puts our irrational fears into perspective by presenting the facts and exploding the fallacies. Far from being killing machines with a taste for human flesh, most sharks are quite nervous of people. There would be many more attacks if they really were out to get us. We pose a far greater threat to sharks than they do to us. According to the most widely accepted scientific estimate, over 100 million sharks are killed by people every year.
