The Ocean Book by Esther Gonstalla

Regular price £9.99 Sale

Esther Gonstalla's beautifully designed The Ocean Book is full of clear and informative diagrams and illustrations that pack a visual punch to shake us out of our complacency, presenting the latest research in oceanography and conservation with pretty infographics that reveal the lack of love and respect we show our oceans.

In this wonderfully clear-sighted book, find out how climate change, loss of biological diversity, overfishing, pollution and ocean-based industries affect the marine environment. Look at the stark facts, presented, oh-so beautifully, about how long it takes a plastic water bottle to break down in the ocean (450 years) and how many marine mammals die from this plastic (100,000 every year).

Consider all that the oceans do for us: stabilising the climate by constantly exchanging heat with the atmosphere, absorbing heat and CO2, they control the weather and slow climate change. Bringing us the stuff of everyday life billions of goods move across our oceans every year providing work and sustenance. Fishing alone employs 12% of people worldwide. Giving us Energy- wave, wind and gas from the oceans power our world. Leisure and Tourism relies on our love of holidays by the seaside.

Read and be inspired by what can be done by each and everyone of us to help the seas recover. As Esther Gonstalla herself says don't be afraid to start small. Every little action counts. Make those little actions a tidal wave of policy, one that finally makes the changes we need to save our seas.
