    What a wonderful topic you’ve chosen to write and present on. Eco sustainability is vital for the world, and the Great Barrier Reef is particularly vulnerable. Pollution, global warming, fishing and recreational over use, all elements affecting such a fragile eco system. Your book is addressing something very important for school children and the school visits look very appealing. I shall be talking to my Principal next week to recommend we book you. Well done dear caring eco advocate.

  • Thanks Kerry,
    I really appreciate you taking the time to comment here and share with your school and principal.
    Look forward to hearing from them.
    Karen 🙂
