The author, Ali Liddle, recently took a two-year sabbatical from her teaching job to work for Falklands Conservation on an environmental education project, particularly to develop locally focussed education material for the Falkland Islands' schools. This book forms part of that project, and has been produced with support from the UK Overseas Territories Environment Programme.
