It's time to save the turtles! Chellie loves the beautiful green turtles on her tropical island home, especially since their scientific name is so close to her own. Every year she would watch them swim in the sea and make their long journeys up the beach to lay their eggs. But one day, Chellie makes a grim and horrible discovery - the rubbish pollution is threatening her beloved turtles, so she is forced to act. Can she save them before it is too late?
