Description

"Good grief! What has happened to the Great Barrier Reef?

Did you know the coral colours are a warning sign?

A global reef alarm? We all need to do what we can to keep it safe from harm."

One day Anthia's home on the Great Barrier Reef starts getting hot, VERY hot. Soon all the colour starts disappearing from the Reef! Join Anthia and her sea creature friends as they find the Great Barrier THIEF and bring the colours back to their underwater home.

The 'Great Barrier Thief' is a children's book illustrating the impacts of climate change on our Great Barrier Reef. This story is written and illustrated by Dr Suzie Starfish, the alter ego of Dr Sue Pillans, an Aussie marine scientist and artist. You can 'sea' the story behind the story at: https://drsuepillans.com/books/the-great-barrier-reef/
