Baby Pearl, the penguin, swallows a piece of plastic that was floating in the ocean. Her penguin family rushes her to see Anya the Penguin Protector. Anya is able to help rescue baby Pearl and educate people about the dangers that are caused by our over-use of plastics. Anya the Penguin Protector is based off the author, Anya Gupta, who is a 10 year old environmentalist. Anya's mission is to make the oceans a safer place for penguin families and educate people on how their daily choices effect ocean life.
