About the Author
Ellie Jackson is a mother of four young children and lives by the sea in Looe, Cornwall. Her first book, Duffy's Lucky Escape, was written after she and her young family saw a turtle called Duffy being released back into the ocean after a year of treatment for ingesting plastic.
“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.”
In this way, Ellie, an environmental scientist who taught geography for six years, 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.
Since then Ellie has gone on to write three more books Marli's Tangled Tale, Nelson's Dangerous Dive and Buddy's Rainforest Rescue.
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.
