Oceans: the National Geographic Official Companion Book to the Disney Nature Motion Picture, Now Available in Stores!

March 26th, 2010 | By | Filed in AK NEWS, Books

You don’t have to wait until April 22 to start enjoying Océans, the documentary about the world’s oceans that we’re so proud to have been a part of. The companion book is out in stores, with photos, text, and even behind-the-scenes shots of what it took to film in some of the most challenging environments on earth.

Not just an authoritative, wide-ranging guide to the world’s oceans, this is also a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse of practical film-making under demanding, often difficult, sometimes downright dangerous conditions… and, last but by no means least, it’s a clear-eyed, timely, persuasive preview of future seas: what we might have if we act now–and what we will surely get if we don’t.

The book is available through online retailers, including Barnes & Noble and Amazon, or ask for it at your local bookstore!
