Improved Off-site Access or Keep All Online Journals?

The San Diego Zoo Global Library currently provides SDZG team members with onsite access to >20,000 online journals and eBooks. However, off-site access is available for only some of these resources. The cost to improve off-site access is considerable. Your feedback is a crucial part of our service evaluation.

Book of the Month

Vaquita : Science, Politics, and Crime in the Sea of Cortez


By Brooke Bessesen (2018)

In this haunting story, Brooke Bessesen sets out to Mexico's Upper Gulf region to untangle the intricacies of the biology, acoustical science, and international intrigues behind the vaquita's decline. She interviews townspeople, fishermen, politicians, scientists, and activists, teasing apart a complex story filled with villains and heroes, a story whose outcome is unclear. When diplomatic and political efforts to save the little porpoise fail, Bessesen follows a team of veterinary experts in a binational effort to capture the last remaining vaquitas and breed them in captivity—the best hope for their survival.
