The oceans support all life on Earth as well as influencing the climate, dictating our weather patterns and providing half of the oxygen we breathe. Today, scientists know of around 230,000 species of animals and plants living in the oceans, but it’s thought that there could be as many as two million yet to be discovered.

Yet, as fast as scientists are discovering new life, climate change and pollution – among other threats – are hastening great losses in our natural world, with extinction rates at unbelievably high levels. Therefore, it makes even more sense to educate everyone about the wondrous variety of life in our oceans – and the beautiful Oceanarium is a great place to start.

Featuring chapters that illustrate and explain creatures under the classifications of Plankton, Cnidaria, Molluscs and Echinoderms, Arthropods, Fish, Mammals, Birds, Reptiles and Humans and the Ocean, Oceanarium is a stunning resource for home or school. With remarkable illustration that will make anyone want to dive in and learn more about the wondrous oceanic realms, this is a brilliant addition to the now extensive “Welcome to the Museum” series, which has featured the planets, plants, history and more.
