4.0 out of 5 stars Seahorse Rescue, 19 Aug 2012
This review is from: Shadows under the Sea (Zsl London Zoo) (Paperback)
Joe's father is a wildlife photographer and his mother is a vet, so the family is often to be found in exotic locations helping with conservation projects and having a lot of fun along the way. This book is the second in the International Rescue series. In the first book (Paw Prints in the Snow) the Brook family was in Russia where Binti, Joe's mum, was working on a project involving the Amur tigers and in this book, Peter, Joe's dad is invited to the Philippines, to photograph endangered seahorses in their natural habitat. There is a lot of information tucked away in this story and, as the family get to know their temporary new home, we learn about life on these islands, the problems facing the local human population, and the problems facing the coral reef and the creatures that make their homes there. The story gets exciting when Joe and his new friend, Dario, encounter some men who are involved in the illegal activity of blast fishing and, of course, the boys try to stop this.

The series is produced with the help of the ZSL London Zoo's conservation team, so we can be confident that all the facts are correct and I think an exciting story is a great way to raise awareness of the dangers facing some of the world's wildlife. The next book (Feathers in the Wind) is due out soon and from the title I am guessing it will be about birds!

It's a great book and a great story line but it does get a bit slow towards the middle .
