Marine Mammals (offered at the Hingham Public Library)  

Welcome to the wonderful world of marine mammals! These creatures are a fascinating and sometimes surprising group of animals. This group shares not only the essential characteristics of mammals but some fascinating adaptations to their water environment. They show intelligence and innovation in dealing with their environment, and we humans often find their behavior in the wild to be very amazing. We have learned and utilized some of their adaptations for our own inventions. Not only are they interesting in their own right, but mammals are essential to the continued health of the oceans and, ultimately, to the health of the planet.
