Coral Reefs Matter

By Julie Murphy (ABDO, Core Library, 2016)

What can we learn about the health of an ecosystem through coral reefs? This book takes readers into our warming oceans to learn why and how coral reefs are hurting, and why it’s a larger issue for the thousands of animals and humans who depend on its resources.

I trained as a zoologist and zookeeper, and have been a children’s book author and presenter for over twenty years. Why do I write? Because it’s fun! What do I write about? Mostly my main interests – animals and the environment.
