This initiative is supported by the Australian Government as part of National Science Week.


This project has many contributors and I would like to take the opportunity to thank them.


To the team at Marinova - this project is as much yours as it is mine. Thank you for your enthusiasm and support, I could not have done this without your help.


Dr Helen Fitton and Dr Craig Sanderson - thank you for sharing your beautifully chosen words and your knowledge.


To Sharon and Alex - I love you both very much. Sorry for having to stay up so late to finish this book!


For whatever reason, we must acknowledge that our world is changing. I believe now, more than ever, we need to celebrate and respect the wonder of Mother Nature. The beauty of our environment transcends politics and we should be doing everything we can to help to protect , maintain and enjoy it - preferably in that order! It is up to us.
