#BookReview: Shark Quest: Protecting the Ocean's Top Predators by Karen Romano Young

About the Book:

Sharks are in trouble. 

Fifty shark species are at high risk of extinction, and another sixty-three are threatened. 

Discover the work of scientists and conservationists as they study shark biology and morphology; research migration, feeding, and mating patterns; delve into human, climate, and other threats to shark habitat; and develop sophisticated technologies to aid sharks and shark research.

 See how scientists also educate the public about real and imagined fear of sharks and encourage citizen participation in shark conservation efforts. 

You can even adopt a shark!

My Review: Another awesome book this one about sharks! I always go into these with my mom thinking we know a lot about these creatures only to learn that we don't know anything.  This one gives amazing photos that I know I wouldn't want to take. And some great information that me and my mom didn't know! If you want an exciting book about sharks check this one out!
