On December 2, 2001, the Galapagos Marine Reserve became a World Heritage site. Few people are more intimately connected with the Galapagos' aquatic life than Pierre Constant, author of the best-selling "Galapagos: A Natural History Guide", also from Odyssey Books. Constant now offers us "Marine Life of the Galapagos", a definitive guide that introduces many new species of never-before-seen marine life. This book is geared primarily to divers, an extremely fast-growing market in the archipelago. In 2000, the Galapagos was voted best dive destination overall in the Indo-Pacific by the US-based Magazine "Divers Trust/Rodale's Scuba Diving". This destination is also renowned for having the best fish life, healthiest marine environment, best big animal dives and best advanced diving categories.
