Free sample

You don’t have to be a naturalist to care about nature, and you don’t have to be an expert to appreciate the distinctive lives of animals. That’s the main theme in this ecology narrative written as part travel diary – part memoir. Cynthia Moulton, a biology professor at Castleton University who has been traveling to St. John with college students for more than fifteen years, is uniquely qualified to lead you on a tour of the fascinating lives of animals residing in the sea, sand, and trees of this enchanted tropical island. Snorkel over the fringing reef of Waterlemon Cay, along the rocky shore of Yawzi Point and in the mangroves of Hurricane Hole. Swim with sea turtles, stingrays, groupers and damselfish to appreciate their beauty and grace, as well as their struggle for survival. From sex-changing parrotfish to group sex in corals, the animals of the island have stories to tell and secrets to reveal. Discover the many mysteries behind the island’s subtle web of life in Interconnected.
