The release of author Mary Faye’s The Adventures of Patroller Puffer, a tale that comes with a cautionary message on coral reef and aquatic life preservation, last year has caught the attention of supporters of marine life preservation from all over the world. Her advocacy however, did not end at the book’s publication but a continuous drive to awaken everybody of the marine life’s great threats. Now, she persistently encourages readers to explore deeper on the message of her book and offer awareness to children on what they can contribute to help in this cause.

This book explores the very foundations of the islands of the Florida Keys that were formed by a tedious and intricate process of building over the ages. This foundation houses a uniquely colorful and fascinating community of living creatures. The animals and plants of this wondrous world depend upon the uninterrupted living-dying, building process of the coral for their existence.

Aquatic life in the coral reef exhibits behavior much like that of human beings on the land. Fish show curiosity about their environment, perform certain public services for the good of others and their community, show loyalty in the defense of their own kind and they choose mates.

Coral reefs around the world are endangered from both deliberate and unintentional actions of people. The building of shore resorts and marinas has required dynamiting large areas of coral. Oil is lethal in sea communities in quantities as large as spills from tankers and rigs or as small as what is leftover in cans and tossed overboard from small craft. Snorkelers and divers who carelessly brush against the reef can dislodge whole populations of living communities.

In The Adventures of Patroller Puffer, The Fish of a coral community in the Florida Keys have serious problems caused by The People. But a little Person named Thomas and a little Fish named Puffer, two very special outsiders, will join together and help them out. Will they be able to restore the faith of The Fish in the goodness of The People? Readers may find out in this informative book.
