Fabien Cousteau, Hannah Bernard of Hawaiʻi Wildlife Fund, Tommy Cutt of Maui Ocean Center Marine Institute, and two junior explorers embark on a mission to rescue endangered sea turtles in the coral reefs of Maui, Hawaiʻi, in this next brightly illustrated installment of the Fabien Cousteau Expeditions graphic novel series.
Fabien Cousteau came to Maui, Hawaiʻi for a vacation, but when he hears that endangered sea turtles are in trouble, he knows he has to help!
Junior explorers Baylor and Bianca join Fabien, Hannah, and Tommy, on their mission to rescue these turtles from ghost nets – fishing nets that have been left adrift in the ocean and tangle up anything that strays into their path.
During their dive, they’ll also encounter sharks, humpback whales, dolphins, seals, eagle rays, octopi, and the vibrant variety of wildlife that lives among the coral reefs of Molokini Crater. Can the team save these injured turtles in time?
Dive deep into this colorful and informative graphic novel adventure that brings readers up close and personal with the sea creatures of the vast and beautiful Pacific Ocean!
Along the way, readers will also see how pollution and climate change can impact entire underwater ecosystems and find actionable steps that they can take to reduce waste and protect these precious reefs.
