Wildtribe Heroes, children's books about ocean pollution and animals

 

 

The Wild Tribe Heroes books have received personal letters of congratulations from Sir David Attenborough and Prince Charles who are both extremely concerned about the issue of ocean plastics and are doing everything they can to help raise awareness. The books have been featured on the BBC, in The Guardian, Mail on Sunday and Huffington Post as well as numerous local newspapers, radio and TV and also featured in international podcasts, blogs and press.

 

Over 8,500 copies have been sold around the world in just over a year, particularly in the UK, Australia & New Zealand and the USA. They are being translated into many different languages including Welsh, French, Hindi, Indonesian, German, Spanish, Turkish, Norwegian and Arabic which are currently available as ebooks.

They are stocked with the National Trust, RNLI, Eden Project, Falmouth Maritime Museum, Surfers Against Sewage, 2 Minute Beach Clean, Marine Conservation Society UK, Wildlife Trust and Fathoms Free as well as many book shops, museums, art galleries, gift shops, zero waste and farm shops around the country as well as numerous online stores.

Over 500,000 children around the UK in libraries, schools and preschools have been using the Wild Tribe Heroes books to learn about the problem of ocean plastics. Through our Books Into Schools project, local businesses, individuals, organisations, councils, parents and grandparents can help inspire thousands of children across their community to get involved and take action.

Each school receives an Educational Pack of the three books plus teaching ideas and digital resources and the aim is to target an entire region at the same time. The result of children reading the books in schools is remarkable. They are organising litter picks and beach cleans, setting up recycling stations and importantly, using their persuasive writing skills to write to local business asking them to stop their use of single use plastic. Between these thousands of children they will have links to every single business in the community and so the children become the teachers, inspiring their families, schools and wider business communities to make the changes our environment so desperately needs us to make. This is creating cleaner and healthier towns and environments, coastal regions and cities.

 

 

 

Ellie Jackson - I am an international children’s author and mother of four, writing environmental children’s books on ocean plastic. I have reached over 500,000 children worldwide in schools with the message of ocean plastic, inspiring them, their schools, families and wider communities to take action and help create change in their community.

 

Ellie lives by the sea in Looe, Cornwall. She wrote her first book after living on Magnetic Island in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. She became inspired when her young family saw a turtle called Duffy being released back into the ocean after a year of treatment for ingesting plastic. 

She is quoted as saying: “My children and I were transfixed by the sight of this beautiful creature being set free, and subsequently visited a turtle hospital on the mainland to find out more. Once my children had made the link between plastics and turtles they were inspired to pick up litter from beaches so that they could help protect turtles and other sea life.”

 

Ellie is an environmental scientist. She taught geography for six years. She conceived her idea to use children’s books as a way of educating young people about the threat to sea life of our dependence on plastic.

 

 

 

Liz Oldmeadow - illustrated Duffy’s Lucky Escape and is a multi award winning illustrator and photographer from Port Stephens, a coastal town in NSW, Australia. Liz has always felt a deep connection to the environment and completed a Bachelor of Natural History Illustration at the University of Newcastle in 2007. Liz has been working as an illustrator and photographer for more than 10 years, drawing inspiration from Australian wildlife and landscapes. 

 

 

 

Laura Callwood - is a self taught artist and mother of two boys living in Cornwall and she has had a passion for art from a very young age, enjoying all mediums and styles of painting and drawing. Laura began working professionally in portraiture after the birth of her eldest son 8 years ago but has been working in illustration in more recent years. Laura finds great inspiration in nature, from the wild and windy moors to the beautiful coastal landscapes near her home. Illustration enables Laura to express herself whilst conveying vital messages about the importance of looking after our environment. With illustration this can be done in a gentle and thoughtful way that is easy for children to understand.
