Overview

Ten-year-old Isaac is flat out. Helping his mum run a caravan park on the Queensland coast means no time for fun. So when he finds a sea turtle nesting on the beach, he’s disappointed that he can’t volunteer as a turtle tracker to watch over her eggs and hatchlings. To make matters worse, famous travel blogger Eddie Eastwood and his mischievous dog come to stay. Isaac must pull out all the stops because a zero-star review from Eddie would spell disaster for his mum and the park.

How can Isaac find the time to protect the turtles and make a difference?

Turtle Trackers will appeal to junior conservationists and wildlife-loving younger readers and aims to bring more awareness to these amazing animals and their unique nesting rituals.
