The Blue Wonder

ebook

An intimate account of the beauty, mystery, and amazing science of the ocean.

In The Blue Wonder, marine biologist and diver Frauke Bagusche brings readers on a fascinating and beautiful deep-sea dive into the ocean. Drawing on scientific discoveries and her own research, she uses photographs and playful prose to reveal:

  • deep-sea reefs that glitter like glass
  • fish that converse with each other by singing––loudly
  • an octopus that imitates more than fifteen other animals
  • the secret behind why the sea glows at night
  • "weddings" that happen amongst the coral
  • underwater "drugstores"
  • and even fish that clean her own teeth!
  • Humans know more about the moon's surface than we do about the ocean. There is so much to be discovered, under the sea. With the heart of a poet and the mind of a scientist, Frauke Bagusche re-awakens our love for the sea and ignites a desire to protect this vital habitat.
