This book is a narrative about the Burrunan dolphin, a new species found living in the Gippsland Lakes. The students were involved in a workshop with Dr Kate Charlton-Robb from the Australian Marine Mammal Conservation Foundation where they learnt about the Burrunan dolphin. Dr Kate was mentioned in this book.
At the launch of this book in 2014, the students found out from Dr Kate that Jimmy Four Nicks was actually a girl as she was spotted with a new calf in the Gippsland Lakes. The students had a class competition to name the new dolphin and they called it “Finn” – suitable for a boy or girl.
