Anglais The Dolphin in the Mirror

À propos

"One comes away from Reisss book agreeing that dolphins are among the smartest creatures on the planet and that they merit not just our attention but our care and protection."--New York Times For centuries, humans and dolphins have enjoyed a special relationship, evident not just in mythology and folklore but in many documented encounters. Diana Reiss is one of the worlds leading experts on dolphin intelligence, and her decades of research and interactions with dolphins have made her a strong advocate for their global protection. In The Dolphin in the Mirror, Reiss combines her science and activism to show just how smart dolphins really are and why we must protect them. Dolphins are creative and self-aware, with distinct personalities and the ability to communicate with humans. They craft their own toys, use underwater keyboards, and live in complex societies in the seas. And yet some nations continue to slaughter them indiscriminately. This story of Reisss encounters and research with dolphins is both a scientific revelation and an emotional eye-opener, revealing one of the greatest intelligences on the planet and exposing our terrible mistreatment of the smartest creatures in the sea. "Reiss has managed no small feat--synthesizing personal experience, descriptive material, and scientific fact . . . No one reading this book could possibly remain untouched by the beauty and intelligence of these powerful mammals of the sea."--Irene Pepperberg, author of Alex & Me "Reiss fills the book with such intriguing tales and with the science behind them Reiss is passionate about her science, but she is passionate about her subjects as well."--The Tampa Bay Times
