About the Author.

Ellie Jackson (who has kindly signed all our books) is an environmental scientist and teacher.? As a mother of four, she wanted to help children understand the impact of plastics on our ocean ecosystems.? It was a real-life turtle called Duffy which inspired her first book, Duffy was released back into the Ocean following a year of treatment after ingesting plastic.

Just Gaia Family Thoughts

Blake-Ava (7)

My Favourite story is Marli’s Tangled Tale, I love Puffins but I don’t get to read about them in books very much so I was very excited.? My dream, when I am older, is to be a vet.

I found it interesting to read about the role that a vet has in a Wildlife Sanctuary. I have realised that you can help keep animals safe and well in many ways by using less plastic and using reusable water bottles.
