SOMEBODY SWALLOWED STANLEY - PAPERBACK
Everybody has a taste for Stanley, but he is no ordinary jellyfish. Stanley is a plastic bag…
With beautiful illustrations, Somebody Swallowed Stanley tells the story of the problems a simple plastic bag can create in the oceans and all the creatures he meets on his journey.
Eco-expert Sarah Roberts has worked in conservation all around the world. With large amounts of plastic spreading into remote ecosystems and food chains, Sarah is on a mission to help children understand the issues: "If children aren't aware, how can they protect their favourite places and the awesome creatures who live there?"
Some facts about plastics
- 18 billion pounds of plastic waste flows into the oceans every year from coastal regions.
- Plastic impacts entire food chains – sea, soil, plants and creatures. Scientists predict that every seabird and every turtle on this planet have plastic in their stomachs.
- Reducing, reusing, recycling and picking up plastic makes a life or death difference to ocean life.
- Our actions have global effects as currents transport plastics across continents. There is even evidence of plastic pollution on the North Pole.
