Product Description: Ride alongside the author Pamela S. Turner and her scientific team and meet a cast of dolphin characters large enough (and charismatic enough) to rival a Shakespearean play—Puck, Piccolo, Flute, and Dodger among them. You will fall in love with this crew, both human and finned, as they seek to answer the question: just why are dolphins so smart?

From the surface of the ocean, it's hard to see any visible signs of life below. But this remarkable ecosystem is teeming with life―life that is increasingly under environmental stress. And it is often the predators that sound the earliest warning signs. By tracking a wide variety of ocean predators, the Tagging of Pacific Predators (TOPP) project provides essential cutting-edge information about the state of the ocean's health and the challenges facing all its inhabitants. Acclaimed science writer Pamela S. Turner takes readers along with four predators―a leatherback sea turtle, a bluefin tuna, a great white shark, and a Sooty Shearwater―on their remarkable journeys. This full-access look will change the way readers view our blue planet.
