The Long Point World Biosphere Reserve Foundation has teamed up with local children’s author Jan Everett to offer a revised edition of her popular “Never Give Up” book about little Johnny helping turtles cross a dangerous road. The book is based on the true story of her husband John’s efforts to rescue turtles crossing the Long Point Causeway, once rated the fourth deadliest road for turtles in North America.
Johnny’s story also reflects the work of local citizens since 2006 to reduce road mortality of turtles, snakes and frogs on the Causeway that is located in the Biosphere Reserve. The group has faced many challenges to their efforts to install signage, barrier fencing and ecopassages along the road but like little Johnny, their motto is “never give up”!
The revised edition includes photos and information about the Long Point Causeway Improvement Project and the Biosphere Reserve. “Never Give Up” sells for a suggested retail price of $9.99 and is available at Shear Creations and A Book Shoppe in Port Rowan, Ontario.
Copies of the book may also be purchased directly from the Long Point World Biosphere Reserve Foundation, via PayPal or by mail (P.O. Box 338, Port Rowan, ON, N0E 1M0). To place an order, please indicate the number of books at $9.99 each and add 5% HST (books are exempt from the 8% provincial portion of HST). Also add the cost of shipping and handling, based on the chart below.
|No. of books||1||2||5||10||20||25||50|
|Shipping and handling||$3.00||$4.00||$5.00||$12.00||$13.00||$13.00||$15.00|
For example, an order for 5 books would cost (9.99 X 5) = $49.95 plus (HST at 5%) = 2.50 plus shipping and handling = $5.00. The total cost of the order would be $57.45. Please mail in a cheque made out to the Long Point World Biosphere Reserve Foundation to the address noted above. Be sure to include your return address with your order.
Please note that proceeds from the sale of Never Give Up will be used to continue the work of protecting turtles, snakes and frogs along the Long Point Causeway.
