Meet the Authors!
April 3, 2015 | Category: Photography & Art
For Northwest residents, it may be surprising to learn that one of the most vibrant and biologically diverse ecosystems in the world can be found in our own backyard. Straddling the western border between Canada and the United States, the Salish Sea is one of the world’s largest inland seas, with 4,642 miles of coastline and thousands of different species of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and macro-invertebrates.
In The Salish Sea: Jewel of the Pacific Northwest, authors Audrey DeLella Benedict and Joseph K. Gaydos take readers on a spectacular tour of this rich world, from invertebrates of the deep to river otters, killer whales, bald eagles, and even humans that call this region home. Audrey and Joseph have a profound appreciation for the Salish Sea, and they’re passionate about educating others about the wonders of the Salish and the need to preserve it.
