“Every day birds and other wildlife get caught in fishing line and fish hooks that are not properly thrown away. The line washes up on beaches and mangrove islands and then eventually the animals get it wrapped around them.”
Osprey gives Florida kids four 4 Eco-actions they can take to address the issue.
The Florida Five Project uses “knowledge placement” to cleverly infuse stories with Florida facts for kids, but each issue of the comic book, as well as the website, includes :
ECO-Alerts – Critical environmental issues faced by Florida and steps kids can take.
ECO-Tips – Simple, everyday ways to be part of the solution.
ECO-Heroes – People making a difference for Florida’s environment. IT COULD BE YOU!
