Tam Warner Minton Unveils 'ALL FISH FACES' Book About Tropical Reef Fish
Tropical fish are extraordinarily beautiful creatures, but not everything is as perfect as it may seem.
The underwater world is currently facing major changes and challenges. Climate change is propelling tropical fish and other ocean life into cooler and foreign waters. This change in the ecosystem can make food supplies scarcer for tropical fish, other creatures, and even commercial fisheries. This is a major crisis that isn't just a job for scientists to solve-it's up to all of us.
Enter "citizen science," which is when the public engages in research endeavors on behalf of scientists. Also meet Tam Warner Minton, author and photographer of ALL FISH FACES: Photos and Fun Facts about Tropical Reef Fish. Through citizen science, Minton was able to join scientists on fieldwork explorations around the world and photograph her findings beneath the surf. The result is a stunning photographic book of tropical fish faces, containing educational facts as well. She hopes readers will understand the importance of ocean conservation through her work. She is specifically empowered with educating children on this topic. Her hope is that the close-up images of tropical fish will help humanize the undersea world.
"Showing people the amazing life beneath the waves is the way to preserve our oceans for future generations," Minton says. "Knowledge is power."
Filled with an amazing collection of tropical fish and riveting facts, readers will be enlightened by:
- Incredible facts about a vast collection of tropical reef fish
- Up-close images of tropical fish, photographed by Tam Warner Minton while on her diving explorations
- Advice on how we can help our ocean friends have a healthy and safe home, from recycling to using ocean-friendly sunscreen, and so much more!
