Maya Makes Waves is a conservation-themed picture book about appreciating and protecting our oceans, by professional big wave surfer and UNESCO Champion of the Ocean and Youth, Maya Gabeira

There is nowhere Maya feels more happy and at home than in the sea. The water washes her worries away; there are countless wonders to experience and creatures to learn from. The dolphins show her how to be a stronger swimmer, the sea turtles make her feel calm, and the humpback whale inspires her to be mighty. But when Maya starts to notice plastic pollution and coral destruction, she realizes that her ocean home is in danger—and it’s up to her to take action. Professional surfer Maya Gabeira, known for surfing Guinness World Record–breaking big waves, shares a story—inspired by her own life—of finding the courage to speak up for the ocean. Beautifully illustrated by Ramona Kaulitzki, Maya Makes Waves is both a celebration of our big blue world, and a call to protect and restore it.


"A strong addition to the chorus of voices demanding action."
