Tabby is our fearless leader. A young scientist, with a passion for environmental issues, Tabby is more comfortable in a swamp than an office. Her current assignment is to study a local wetland slated for destruction. With the help of Jesse and Seka, Tabby gathers scientific data that will ultimately prove the wetland to be absolutely essential to the survival of hundreds of plants and animals as well as integral to the health and well-being of people as well. Tabby’s little sister, Seka, shares her love for science, but Tabby will have to work extra hard to convince Jesse that science is fun!
