Ellie Jackson

Author of the Wild Tribe Heroes series of books

Author Ellie Jackson, a mother of four has written a series of books to help educate children about the impact of plastics on ocean ecosystems.

Ellie Jackson, who lives by the sea in Looe, Cornwall, wrote her first book while living in Australia. It was inspired by a year spent on a tropical island, during which she and her family saw a turtle 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,” she remarks.

“Afterwards, the children were obsessed with clearing 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 fiction as a way of educating young people about the threat to sea life of our dependence on plastic. Thus Duffy the sea turtle was born, whose adventures provide the basis for Ellie’s first book, entitled Duffy’s Lucky Escape. Since then Ellie has written four other children’s books with important environmental messages for everyone, young and old.
