Books that make a REAL difference
Lovers of Sea Turtles rejoice! Our SEA LIFE Aquariums across Australia and New Zealand have launched a set of brand new, children's storybooks, with 100% of the profits going towards caring for Sea Turtles in the wild.
Right here in Sydney you can purchase 'Plugga The Green Sea Turtle’, a true story about a beautiful turtle which resides at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and has been in human care for his whole life after being found injured and in need of a home.
This gorgeous story, written and illustrated by Kirsty Esson – artist, turtle lover and SEA LIFE team member – explores the dangers that turtles face in the wild and touches on themes of adventure, hardship, and the nurturing care of those who look after Plugga.
This story is for any children who love turtles and want to learn how they too can help these majestic creatures in the wild.
Plugga the Green Sea Turtle will be for sale with the online purchase of a SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium ticket or alternatively, guests at the aquarium can pick up a copy on their way out via the gift shop and our online retail store.
Books will be available for sale from 23rd May.
Retailing at just $15, 100% of profits from the sale of this book will be donated to registered charity the SEA LIFE Trust who will in turn utilise the funds on conservation campaigns, scientific research and inspiring education – all in the name of the Sea Turtle.
