"Spiny porcupine fish, toxic sea slugs, colorful coral reefs - Journey under the Sea is a voyage into the fascinating, hidden world of the ocean. Glorious color photographs of weird and wonderful underwater creatures and their habitats enliven every page, and the accessible and lively text explains the astonishing sights we encounter along the way. The trip uncovers the interesting survival strategies of the ocean's inhabitants and teaches how to care for this fragile environment." "Before diving below the waves, we must learn the basics of underwater safety. Journeying under the sea requires special equipment - including an air cylinder, a buoyancy compensator, and a depth gauge - and proper training. The exhilaration of swimming among the fish makes these preparations well worth it!" "Our dive takes place off the coast of Indonesia, home to some of the world's finest coral reefs. An experienced dive guide takes us to an under-sea meadow, a coral garden, the muddy ocean floor, and to deep waters, revealing shy seahorses, venomous lionfish, and many other amazing creatures." "Along with visits to a breeding ground for graceful manta rays and a reef populated with sea turtles, we learn about the threats to this remarkable world we have been exploring, such as dynamiting, boats, storms, careless divers, pollution, and global warming."--BOOK JACKET. Text and photographs guide the reader through a hidden world beneath the waves, the marine life living off the coast of Indonesia. Suggested level: primary, intermediate, secondary.
