Barney and the TED


Download a copy

Barney, a Kemp’s ridley sea turtle, is hunting for food in the Gulf of Mexico when he suddenly finds himself accidentally caught up in a shrimp fisherman’s trawl net. Is this the end for Barney, who is a member of the most endangered sea turtle species on Earth? Written by Robert Stickney and his daughter, Marolan Tilcock, and illustrated by graphic designer Tanya Baker, this coloring book tells the story of Barney’s life and explains in simple terms the measures used by commercial shrimp fishermen to keep turtles and other sea life from being caught along with the shrimp. For grades 3-6.
