About the book

Marti the Hammerhead Shark is our educational book. It follows Marti, a young scalloped hammerhead shark, on her journey from the Galapagos Islands to Cocos Island, Costa Rica. Through Marti and her marine friends’ magical, yet perilous, journey across the Pacific Ocean, children will learn about the dangers that critically endangered scalloped hammerheads face on their epic migrations. From industrial fishing to plastic pollution, this educational book teaches children about the threats facing our oceans globally. Furthermore, they will discover more about the scientists who track these incredible journeys and how to protect marine species. 

The book fits into our Endangered Sharks of Galapagos and Connecting with Nature programmes, acting as an education tool for local children in Galapagos and internationally to engage them in shark conservation. You can read about the storybook successes here.

This educational storybook book is written by GCT’s Sarah Langford and beautifully illustrated by Lisa Brown. It is sure to capture a child’s imagination and teach them more about the marine life of Galapagos.
