As we acknowledge the value of environmental education for children as a possible way to build a nature-friendlier attitude of future adults, the International Association for Danube Research (IAD), Austria and the Institute for Integral Development and Environment (ICRO), Slovenia, have prepared an e-book and a coloring book addressed to children of all ages.
Entitled “The Adventures of Starry, the Brave Sturgeon“, the book highlights the adventures of a little sturgeon and the challenges he faces in his natural habitats, the river and the sea. We hope that, by presenting the life in the aquatic environment through the eyes of its inhabitants, he will succeed to raise awareness on the need to preserve the rivers and the aquatic biodiversity. For the very little readers, we have prepared coloring books.
The materials are posted for free download on the IAD website, and they are available in English, German, Bulgarian, Croatian, Hungarian, Romanian, Serbian and Ukrainian. Slovakian and Slovenian versions will follow soon.
