Ozzy Ozone: Defender of Our Planet - Ozzy goes Island Hopping

The fourth issue of the “Ozzy Ozone: Defender of our Planet” comic book series, entitled “Ozzy Goes Island Hopping” features ozone depletion and climate change with a special focus on Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs). In this story Ozzy and Zoe Ozone travel from the stratosphere to visit their friends Alida, the leatherback turtle; Guno, the sand crab and Ronaldo, the red snapper in Suriname to learn about the effects of climate change in small islands and low-lying coastal states. They also journey to Fiji to meet Tau, the crested iguana to learn about the importance of phasing out HCFCs, which are gases used to replace ozone depleting substances but themselves can contribute significantly to climate change. At the end of their travels they meet Frank the Frog and Maakanaa, the Grey Heron in the Maldives to learn some simple actions that young people can take in their daily lives to help protect the ozone layer and diminish the impacts of climate change.
