Written by Cornwall's very own Ellie Jackson. Ellie is a mother of four young children who has written a series of books to help educate children about the impact of plastics on ocean ecosystems. She wrote her first book after living on Magnetic Island in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, during which time, she and her young family saw a turtle called Duffy being released back into the ocean after a year of treatment for ingesting plastic.
