Seka is a bright girl who is sometimes a little too serious and studious for her own good. Luckily her best friend, Jesse, is always on hand to make things lively! And Seka’s sister, Tabby, is on hand to get Seka away from her text books and into the real world of science – the wetland. Seka’s not exactly thrilled with the real world of science – too many creepy crawlies and too much slime! However, she’s not going to let a little slime get in the way of her goal of saving the wetland. Seka cares, passionately, about all the living things that need the wetland as their home – even if some of them are a little creepy and slimy!
