Synopsis by Alice Day
The conservation of marine ecosystems is the topic of Reading Rainbow: Jack, the Seal, and the Sea, as host LeVar Burton goes out to sea with a group of marine biologists. He inspects samples of sea life brought up by the researchers, including a leopard shark, and learns how scientists check for signs of distress in the ocean environment. Leslie Uggams reads Jack, the Seal, and the Sea by Gerald Aschenbreuner. In the book review segment, youngsters analyze the merits of A Day in the Life of a Marine Biologist and Sterling, the Rescue of a Baby Harbor Seal.
