Rainforests of the sea
The theme of the Jabuji-Debates 2016-17 is Coral Reefs.
We will be exploring the subject of coral reefs through Caretta Caretta a novella by Rosa da Silva set in Brazil’s recently discovered Amazon Reef. The novella has been especially written for Eton College who are running the Jabuji Debates 2016/17. It is a sequel to the novel Jabujicaba with the heroine Carmen Macedo.
The eco-thriller Caretta Caretta creatively explores geo-political issues and different stakeholder perspectives on how to best protect the world’s coral reefs. It also raises wider ethical issues concerning anthropocentric approaches to the protection our planet.
If you are interested in a copy of Caretta Caretta please contact the debate organisers with the organisers by e-mail. It will soon also be available as an e-book on Amazon Kindle.
Caretta caretta is the species name for the Loggerhead sea turtle, currently listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List.
