            Torri and two of her turtle youngsters, Zelmo and Purtle, leave Ningaloo and head north knowing that there will be many good deeds to be done and that they will find eco- adventure along the way. They soon meet up with Wilma the whale shark who becomes a great travelling companio...n and part of the team who help out with the sometimes tricky eco-work. There are delightful marine experiences shared with various sea creatures, scary times to be overcome and lots of rescuing of marine life from hazards and harm. The value of cooperation and teamwork is proven, along with the power of self-belief and ancient wisdom. Torri's rainbow shell and her Aboriginal art form shell frequently shine through as she carries out her eco-work. This is the final book in the trilogy and reinforces and brings to climax the themes of the two earlier Torri books.

            Waters of the World: The story of the scientists who unravelled the mysteries of our seas, glaciers, and atmosphere - and made the planet whole (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            How is the climate where you are? And how did it get that way? How does the great complex global interaction of ice, ocean, and atmosphere combine to generate the rain that sustains us? And who figured all its secret processes out? From the glaciers of the Alps to the towering cu...mulonimbus clouds of the Caribbean and the unexpectedly chaotic flows of the North Atlantic, Waters of the World is a tour through 150 years of the history of a significant but underappreciated idea- that the Earth has a global climate system made up of interconnected parts, constantly changing on all scales of both time and space. A prerequisite for the discovery of global warming and climate change, this idea was forged by scientists studying water in its myriad forms. This is their story. Linking the history of the planet with the lives of those who studied it, Sarah Dry follows the remarkable scientists who ascended volcanic peaks to peer through an atmosphere's worth of water vapour, cored mile-thick ice sheets to uncover the Earth's ancient climate history, and flew inside storm clouds to understand how small changes in energy can produce both massive storms and the general circulation of the Earth's atmosphere. Each toiled on his or her own corner of the planetary puzzle. Gradually, their cumulative discoveries coalesced into a unified working theory of our planet's climate. We now call this field climate science, and in recent years it has provoked great passions, anxieties, and warnings. But no less than the object of its study, the science of water and climate is - and always has been - evolving. By revealing the complexity of this history, Waters of the World delivers a better understanding of our planet's climate at a time when we need it the most. 'Waters of the World sparkles with lyricism and wit. Dry is a gifted storyteller, and her research into the pre-history of Earth system science has turned up gripping tales of risk, adventure, defiance, and discovery. A unique and impo
