The new 2nd edition of Tam Warner Minton’s ‘picture book for all ages’ – All Fish Faces – is now available.
The 2nd edition includes new photos, new facts, and has a new look and format. Tam’s passion for writing the book, and publishing a 2nd edition, is educating kids about ocean ecology and sea life.
What’s more, 10% of profits will go to the Marine Megafauna Foundation to continue their scientific research to protect our oceans and ocean giants.
“Like all divers, the state of the ocean is of the utmost importance to me, and my hope is that introducing kids and their families to our ocean friends will create a generation of excited, enthusiastic, and caring ocean lovers! Who knows? Maybe it will encourage future scientists and conservationists. Seeing and getting to know, and love, our fishy friends is a great way to encourage kids to save the ocean for future generations.”
All Fish Faces includes ocean and marine life education and tips on how kids (and everyone they know) can help save our ocean friends.
Zack Rago, the “coral nerd” from the documentary Chasing Coral says: “All Fish Faces is a wonderful tool for kids to explore the magic of reef fishes. The weird and wild facts alongside the frequently hilarious photography make it a joy to read at any age. A must-have for elementary classrooms!”
In addition to facts about fish versus mammals, each tropical reef fish species represented in All Fish Faces shows the species in the different oceans of the world. Kids respond with excitement to the many colors and differences in the fish. Here are a couple of excerpts from the book:
Ebook, hardback and paperback versions of All Fish Faces are now available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and good book stores. Copies are also available via Tam’s author email – email@example.com – at $16.99 for the paperback, and $27.99 for the hardcover.
Special Offer for Scubaverse readers:
Quote ‘Scubaverse’ for a special rate of $14.00 for the paperback signed, and $25 for the hardcover signed, excluding shipping.

Save Our Seas Foundation announce Ocean Storytelling Photography Grant
Stories spark the imagination and nurture ideas. They are, without doubt, our most powerful form of communicating and connecting, both with each other and with the world around us.
The Save Our Seas Foundation (SOSF) have a strong history of supporting marine conservation and education projects and believe that to truly translate knowledge into effective, meaningful change we must communicate through engaging stories. An inspiring or compelling story can spur positive action in ways that no presentation of facts can.
SOSF are delighted to introduce their new emerging Ocean Storyteller Grants, which will focus on photography in its inaugural year. The photography grant is led by our own director of storytelling and National Geographic photographer Thomas Peschak, in collaboration with Kathy Moran and Jennifer Samuel from National Geographic.
While they are looking specifically for photographers who can tell conservation stories about our oceans, the call is not limited to underwater photography. Applicants should think broadly – story topics can range from the animals themselves to fisheries or the communities whose lives are intertwined with marine life. Four successful grantees will each receive a fully funded assignment to shoot a conservation photo story on location (including day rate and travel), under the direct mentorship of the Ocean Storytelling Grant team.
