Marine Discovery Series

The Department of Marine Resource's Marine Discovery Series is intended to help young people learn about the resources, environment, heritage, and history of the Gulf Coast. And in learning important facts that will increase their knowledge and enrich their lives, children (and others who may read the books) will also learn to respect the unique and beautiful environment of the Mississippi Gulf Coast and to take better care of the wonderful world in which we live.

This material was produced by the Department of Marine Resources and funded in part through a grant from the Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management under the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972, as amended. These public documents are not for sale, and all rights to the publications are reserved to the Department of Marine Resources. Copies may be made for educational purposes only.

The first booklet, "The Wetlands: A Student's View," was written in 1982 and the last booklet, "Learning About Nonpoint Source Pollution," was written in 1998. The Mississippi Gulf Coast and the Department of Marine Resources have undergone many transformations since the first publication in 1982. While names and places may have changed, this series still remains a beneficial resource for school-age children and their teachers and parents.
