About the Author


Richard Harrington is a marine biologist and writer. He has written a book about living without plastic, How to Live Plastic Free, after being inspired by a trip to a seabird colony where he helped free birds and their chicks from trash. A regular writer for Coast Magazine in the UK, he has been consulted on several documentaries such as the BBC’s Blue Planet 2 and Blue Planet UK, Sky Ocean Rescue, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s Fish Fight series and the feature film The End of the Line. He also contributed a chapter to a recent book Rewilding: Real Life Stories. Annie Davidson is a Melbourne-based illustrator whose drawings have appeared on textiles, picture books, shop windows and stationery around the world, with clients including Lonely Planet and Converse, among others. She is inspired by Japanese woodblock prints, botanical art and nature—especially forests, tropical landscapes, coral reefs and cactus gardens.
