Synopsis

What is Diwa to do with no seagrass to chew?” Diwa is a dugong. She lives in the shallow seas of the Philippine islands, feasting on seagrass: the only food that dugongs eat. When trees are felled on a nearby hillside, soil washes into the sea and kills the seagrass. Diwa must swim away from the place she knows and find somewhere new to live. On her journey she encounters many perils but also receives help from strangers who tell of a place with bountiful seagrass. This heart-warming story about not giving up hope also raises awareness of endearing but endangered dugongs. Royalties from the sale of this book will support the work of C3 saving dugongs in Busuanga
