From the back cover: “Thousands of fascinating creatures inhabit the beaches, tide pools and waves of the Pacific Northwest. From large marine mammals to delicate corals and anemones, this compact guide includes more than 300 species of marine animals and plants commonly seen along the coast of Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and northern California. Wonderful surprises await anyone – from the first-time beachcomber to the seasoned scuba diver – who spends an afternoon looking closely at the wildlife of our marine shores and waters. Lightweight and accessible, Pacific Reef and Shore is a perennial bestseller and has now been updated with more species, up-to-date scientific information and many new photographs. Each entry includes a description with size and habitat as well as a photo for species verification, allowing readers to identify animals and plants without having to collect or otherwise disturb them – protecting the ecosystem for future generations to observe and enjoy.” Written by Rick M.
