Wild Ocean: Americas Parks Under the Sea by Sylvia Earle, Henry Wolcott

The National Park System, started in 1872 when President Theodore Roosevelt designated Yellowstone, is called the best idea America ever had. One hundred years later, the National Marine Sanctuary system provides a worthy counterpart underwater. In elegant, thought-provoking prose, world-acclaimed marine biologist and National Geographic Society Explorer-in-Residence Sylvia Earle probes these 12 awe-inspiring sites. Her groundbreaking coverage, accompanied by stunning photographs, reveals the sanctuaries wealth of secrets and surprises: An underwater gorge rivaling the Grand Canyon; stands of kelp that diminish giant redwoods in stature; long-lost civilizations and shipwrecks; and shimmering, multilimbed creatures that could thrive in a science fiction novel. Breathtaking, accessible, vital: The parks come alive as pivotal wilderness for our 21st-century planet.
