Stephen Brockwell hosts an essential conversation with Holly Hogan, author Message in a Bottle: Ocean Dispatches from a Seabird Biologist, a book that conjures an exquisite diversity of marine life and warns of a central threat to its survival: ocean plastic.

 

Bringing together nature, science and adventure writing, Hogan shines a light on our plastic-addicted lifestyle, offering an eyewitness account of its devastating effects on the marine environment—and highlighting international efforts to combat it. With lyrical prose and a reverential eye for the majesty and fragility of our natural world, Message in a Bottle is a clarion call to protect global oceans and the life they sustain, including our own.

 

Books are available from our friends at Perfect Books.
