Complete Title: 
Marine protected areas for whales, dolphins and porpoises : a world handbook for cetacean habitat conservation and planning
Non IUCN Publication

Author(s):

Abstract: 

Worldwide in coverage, this 477-page book reveals the inside story on existing and planned marine protected areas (MPAs), marine national parks and sanctuaries around the world. It is designed to be a key resource for scientists, research institutions, students, wildlife conservation agencies, MPA managers, and anyone who cares about cetaceans and the special places where they live. Since most of the world’s MPAs promote whale and dolphin watching and responsible marine ecotourism, the book is also being used by keen cetacean watchers to find some of the best places to watch the 87 species of whales, dolphins and porpoises in 125 countries and territories around the world.
