Hawai'i Sea Turtle Rescue

(3) 4-6 Fabien Cousteau Expeditions series. Illustrated by Joe St. Pierre. In this graphic novel, oceanographer Fabien Cousteau (grandson of Jacques) learns of a group of Hawaiian sea turtles ensnared in an abandoned fishing net and sets off to save them. Enlisting the help of "Junior Expeditioners" Bianca and Baylor, Fabien combs Molokini Island's coral reefs to find and free the turtles. The story is inspired by real expeditions and incorporates information about ocean conservation and microplastic pollution alongside search-and-rescue action. Magazine-style sidebars provide additional facts; digital illustrations effectively depict a diverse range of ocean environments and wildlife.
