Le plus beau lagon du monde
The underwater world of New Caledonia
Par Pierre Laboute, Michel Feuga, René Grandperrin

le plsu beau lagon du monde - New caledonie - Book

Through 500 photos all taken in New Caledonia by Pierre LABOUTE, the majority of which are underwater shots, the authors share their great knowledge and vast experience of the marine world. The reader is led from the coast to the outer slopes, passing through calm bays, lagoon environments, white sand banks and passes, but also the islets in the lagoon, wild far-off islands inhabited by birds and visited by turtles, volcanoes and finally into the great depths in search of archaic fauna.

This book is a veritable hymn to the beauty of the New Caledonian lagoon. Preface by Luc BESSON.

Whales New caledonia - Book

Entirely bilingual, this book is an invitation to discover the life of humpback whales in New Caledonia, a prime observation site favoured by avid biologists Claire GARRIGUE and Jacqui GREAVES. Majestic leaps, young playful acrobats, a mother initiating its newborn whale calf, peaceful couples or amorous sparring have all been photographed and described with sensitivity and scientific rigour.
An alluring and beautiful book to understand the behaviour of whales throughout the world, but also that of marine mammals in general.
