Wild Seas, Secret Shores

Thomas P. Peschak

Wild Seas, Secret Shores is an underwater journey around the African coast, richly portrayed in images that draw the reader into a breathtakingly beautiful and sometimes strange underwater world. Offering a worthy alternative to the continent’s more familiar terrestrial landscapes and wildlife, this photographic essay not only covers all major marine habitats, from kelp forests to coral reef, but also features a wide range of marine species in action, from iconic apex predators such as great white and tiger sharks, to many of the lesser-known but equally fascinating creatures such as jellyfish and starfish. The images in this book were chosen for their ability to transport the viewer right into the heart of the ocean. Each photograph tells a unique story, unearths a bizarre marine creature or provides a detailed and fresh look at a familiar subject; together they make a resounding statement for marine conservation.
