Written for young scientists and their families, The Wildlife Ambassador series blends delightful illustrations with stories about wildlife's challenges. Narrated by Bella and Blue, gregarious Newfoundland dogs, the book describes conflicts between wildlife, people, and pets. Bella and Blue are assisted in by Katie, their human. The narrative lays out the complex problems faced by wildlife in language that can be understood by kids and encourages them to contribute to solving these challenges in their everyday lives.
In Blue Dives In, the third book in the series, the dog duo travels to Belize to understand ocean conservation issues. They meet beautiful reef animals, befriend a lost humpback whale calf, and talk with a friendly brown pelican about the stresses of seabirds. Following their journey, readers learn about jellyfish, invasive species, shark conservation, whale behaviors, surprising reef fish adaptations, and a famous scuba diving dog.
