Whale Quest by Karen Young - ADVISABLE

Young, Karen Romano Whale Quest: Working Together to Save Endangered Species, 113 pages.  NON-FICTION.   Twenty First Century (Lerner), 2017.

As humans spread across the earth they did their best to hunt down and extinguish pretty much every species of whale that they encountered.  As technology improved, the carnage increased.  And new technologies brought new problems, even after people finally started acknowledging that the wholesale hunting needed to stop.

Young paints a vivid, detailed picture f the history of man’s interaction with whales from the past to the present.  If you could convince a middle school or high school student to use a book, this is resource is far superior to than anything they could find on the internet.
