Tips for Viewing the Online Booklet
The California Marine Mammals booklet is divided into segments, rather than one large electronic document. This accommodates the user by downloading document chunks, relatively small PDF files which take less time to transfer.
Each segment, or chunk, has bookmarks embedded in it to help the user navigate between parts of the booklet. Set your PDF Reader plug-in to display "Bookmarks and Pages". With this setting you can click on the bookmarks and go to the related page (or segment) of the booklet.
With the PDF Reader plug-in set to Bookmarks and Pages, your display should look like the inset to the right.
Click on one of the bookmark topics in the left column to take you to that part of the booklet.
