DIVING INTO THE MYSTERIOUS WORLD OF WHALES WITH DR VANESSA PIROTTA

Come along to the SMSA to hear Dr Vanessa Pirotta's enthusiasm and deep knowledge of whales as she explores a variety of timely topics – from why whale snot and poo are important for us and the ocean to the life cycle of whales, the challenges humans present to these marine giants, and the new technologies – including tagging whales via satellite – so we can see where they swim, listen to them talk and even spy on them underwater.

Abbey's will be there too for you to meet Vanessa, buy your copy and get it personally signed.


• THURSDAY 25 JULY, 2024

THE ENERGY DILEMMA

A collection of books on the quest for energy.

IN HOT WATER

In this fascinating, candid and urgent book, Paul Hardisty dives into the history of the Great Barrier Reef and cuts through the rhetoric to chart the circumstances and acceleration of its decline, as well as the determined efforts to save it.

HUMPBACK HIGHWAY

Vanessa Pirotta, acclaimed wildlife scientist, has been mugged by whales, touched by a baby whale and covered in whale snot. In Humpback Highway, Pirotta dives beneath the surface to reveal the mysterious world of humpback whales — from their life cycle and the challenges humans present, to why whale snot and poo are important for us and the ocean. Plus the cutting-edge new technologies that allow us to see where they swim, listen to them talk and spy on them underwater.

DEEP WATER

James Bradley's Deep Water is a hymn to the beauty, mystery and wonder of the ocean. Weaving together science, history and personal experience, it offers vital new ways of understanding humanity's relationship with our planet, looking to our past and our future.

GETTING TO KNOW THE BIRDS IN YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD

Darryl Jones is fascinated by birds and covers 139 different types in his book. He provides information on the habitats, similar species, ecology, features and interactions with humans plus high quality photos to help you identify the birds in your neighbourhood.

DR RIP'S ESSENTIAL BEACH BOOK

Rob Brander shares his comprehensive knowledge about everything related to surf from the different types of waves and currents, to how beaches form and behave; and what to do if you're ever caught in a rip.
