Seventy-one percent of the Earth’s surface is covered in water, connecting us intimately with aquatic life even on dry land. From providing oxygen to food, medicine, and materials, the influence of wild waterlife permeates our existence in myriad surprising ways.

Ocean-dwelling microscopic plants furnish every other breath we take with oxygen, while certain seaweeds offer a direct means to test for viral infections like Covid-19. Even robotics design draws inspiration from the remarkable abilities of aquatic creatures, such as the pike's astounding acceleration capabilities surpassing those of a Porsche.

In "Wild Waters" by Susanne Masters, readers embark on a journey celebrating the rich diversity of wildlife inhabiting our various waterways, from expansive oceans to tranquil ponds. Through vivid storytelling, armchair explorers can discover how aquatic plants and animals profoundly enrich human life.

Whether you're a swimmer, paddleboarder, dog walker, or simply someone who revels in the great outdoors, this book offers valuable insights into local wildlife, guiding you on when and where to observe different species without causing harm. Enhanced by stunning illustrations courtesy of Alice Goodridge, "Wild Waters" offers a captivating glimpse into the captivating world beneath the water's surface.
