Fergus Gives a Hoot by Kathleen McLaren | HB
Wildlife activists, Owl and Echidna, feel sad that so many friends and family members are hurt and killed on the roads. They want humans to make their roads safer for wildlife so they form a group with like-minded friends to tackle the problem. They hatch a plan that involves planting a special seed in a special place. This proves to be a tricky task so they ask human wildlife activist, Fergus Fleegelbaum, to help. Fergus is fearless and determined, but will he succeed in carrying out his part of their clever plan to make roads safer for wildlife?
A remarkable children’s book which explores the issue of roadkill in Tasmania – a state dubbed the roadkill capital of the world – and arms children with the confidence to do something about it. (Donald Knowler, author of Riding the Devil’s Highway)
Striking an animal with a vehicle should never be a case of “it just happens sometimes”. If people saw the suffering of those poor animals, they would do as much as they could to help create change. We all need to work together to be a part of the solution. We all need to give a hoot! (Greg Irons, Director, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary)
