Island Wildlife to Star in New Children’s Book Series

Former Lockley Lodge ‘Keeper’ and supporter of WTSWW, Lucy Griffiths and her partner Chris Thomas are about to launch a series of children’s stories based on the wildlife on Skomer and Skokholm.

The books feature the lead character ‘Puffin Pal’ and a host of other creatures found on the Pembrokeshire Islands, and are aimed at helping very young children learn about nature whilst also developing enterprising mind-sets from a young age.

The pair are using the ‘crowdfunding’ platform Kickstarter to gain backing and orders for their initial print run, and their campaign will run until 22nd September, with the books being printed and despatched in time for Christmas.

Over the winter they’ll also be working with WTSWW to develop a range of interpretation and online and offline educational materials using their characters, which will be aimed at helping families and young children learn about the very special habitats on Skomer and Skokholm.
