Updating will be an ongoing process. The aim is also to bring people closer to marine mammals. This book should elicit interest to enhance our knowledge about the life habits of these remarkable creatures. It should also inspire those in authority to support protection, management and conservation of marine mammals and their diversity and appreciate the services they render to the natural bio-ecosystems.
