We have just stepped into the second week of our #EnvironmentMonth campaign. In the first week, we looked at the stories of real life environment heroes
and the amazing work they are doing.
This week, we encourage you to dive right into the ocean with a special set of books. These books remind us exactly who we share our planet with, and will hopefully help readers young and old think twice before reaching for a one time use plastic, that will mostly likely end up in someone else’s home.
Take a dive with us into the spectacular world of coral reefs, and catch a glimpse of some strange and beautiful sea creatures!
Legless Goby and noisy Snap are best friends who live together in a burrow deep under the ocean. What happens when Goby gets tired of Snap’s loud claws?
Miss Bandicota Bengalensis was not just any little Indian mole rat. She had magical eyes like no other mole rat and she wanted to see everything. Every night, she packed her explorer’s kit: her sunglasses, binoculars, magnifying glass and of course, her favourite – a strip of sticker bandages. “An explorer is always prepared,” she said. Every time she dug in a new direction and returned through a new burrow! This time our unlikely explorer has surfaced near the sea. Enjoy a walk along the beach with her as she befriends a host of strange creatures.
Under cover of darkness, baby olive ridley turtles hatch from sun-warmed eggs on remote beaches. One of them, the little hatchling who is the narrator of our story, is delighted to make it across the beach and into the ocean without losing her way or being captured by predators. But can our little olive ridley survive the dangers of the ocean? Will she make it past the deadly sharks and the terrible fishing nets and reach adulthood? Will she ever have the pleasure of laying her own brood of eggs? Find out in this charming life story of an olive ridley turtle, and meet several other interesting creatures along the way.
Hope you enjoyed diving into the ocean with us! Tune in to our #EnvironmentMonth updates throughout the month of June!
