A poem I wrote about porpoises has appeared in a book called When Mountain Lions Are Neighbors – People and wildlife working it out in California.
I guess the advantage of writing poems about porpoises is you can quickly corner the market.
Written by Beth Pratt-Bergstrom of the National Wildlife Federation, the book tells stories about humans and animals living in various states of harmony – including foxes on the Facebook campus in Silicon Valley, a mountain lion called P-22 who lives in the middle of Los Angeles, and the porpoises who returned to San Francisco Bay in 2007 after a 65-year absence. Good for them.
The book is available here and all proceeds go to the National Wildlife Federation.
