A little blue penguin caught in an oil slick flounders to shore and a likely death; a dolphin the size of a bicycle gets caught in a fisherman's net and nearly drowns; a yellow-eyed penguin wanders in confusion, searching for its nesting site in a tract of newly constructed seaside homes. When the animals that live along the world's coastlines cross paths with humans, too often the animals lose out. But does it have to be this way? This inspiring look at three conservation programs in New Zealand explores how humans and animals can share precious living space. Kenneth Mallory shows people working together at every level--from a government dolphin-protection program to a grassroots penguin shelter--to protect wildlife.
Kenneth Mallory, former editor in chief of publishing programs at Boston's New England Aquarium, writes, edits, and photographs for magazines, newspapers, Web pages, book publishers, and museum exhibits, especially in the field of natural history. He lives in Massachusetts.
