Celia Seagull and the Plastic Sea
Author(s): Nicole Miller
Celia Seagull perched on the cliff, eyeing up plastic and watching it drift. Scanning for pieces to weave through her nest, she held her beak high and puffed out her chest.
Join Celia Seagull as she gathers plastic pieces from the ocean to build a bigger, better nest. With far too much on her agenda, busy Celia refuses to help sea creatures who are tangled in the scrap. But when Celia runs into trouble, who will help her?
"A delightful story that speaks to the harm that is caused by the plastic waste that ends up in the sea. The message is clear: we must dispose of plastic safely and help all life in the ocean." - Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, Founder - the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace
