The Green Pirates - Alarm at the Seal Rescue Station

Sabotage at the Seal Rescue Station – A new case for the Green Pirates

Holidays at the North Sea at last – sun, beach and collecting shells! But shortly after their arrival, the five friends come across the ransacked fishing house of a journalist. And strange things are also happening at the seal rescue station: oil is suddenly floating in the water of the howlers’ pool and the power supply collapses! Coincidence? The Green Pirates smell a new case …

The Green Pirates – that’s what the friends Pauline, Ben, Flora, Lennart and Jannik call themselves. Wherever they intervene to protect the environment, they leave behind the green skull and crossbones as a sign. During their clandestine missions, they repeatedly get into dicey situations.

“This detective story, sprinkled with lots of cheeky dialogue, combines an adventurous plot with information about the natural environment of the North Sea and Wadden Sea and makes a plea for animal-friendly and ecological tourism and fishing. Widely applicable.” – Anna Wagner-Meyle, ekz information services

“An exciting environmental thriller […] Captivatingly narrated, supplemented with a few black and white illustrations. Along the way, one learns interesting facts about the tides, the mudflats, fishing, seals and a seal breeding station. Highly recommended for all libraries.” –
Andrea Dörr, library department of the Protestant Church in the Rhineland
