Nelson: Craig Potton Publishing, 2013. Quarto, dustwrapper, photographs, colour illustrations.
Explores the ongoing relationship between humans and dolphins in New Zealand. It tells the stories of many remarkable encounters, featuring all of the famous dolphins, such as Pelorus Jack from the early years of the 20th century, Opp in the 1950s, Maui and more recently Molo. In addition it chronicles the ultimately doomed attempts to keep dolphins in captivity at facilities such as Marineland in Napier. Importantly, this book also summarises the work of the dedicated scientists and researchers who over recent decades have learnt so much about dolphins, and whose research has given great impetus to dolphin conservation.
