Aimed at snorkellers and scuba divers of all levels of experience, this work explores how, in the marine world, colour, camouflage and mimicry are used as strategies for protection and survival. It also emphasizes that by understanding these strategies, the diver should be able to interact with many species. Divers are also shown techniques that should provoke close encounters with marine animals. Advice is given on where and how to find both large and small creatures from turtles to dolphins to minute crustaceans. In gaining a better understanding of habitat and behaviour, divers are shown how to come in close proximity with marine life and how to take photographs. This book also explores conservation issues and divers are encouraged to take an active interest in the preservation of the underwater environment. In addition, responsible diving practices are discussed which should enable the diver to minimize the risk factor while still maintaining the "adventure" aspect of the sport.
