-- Actor Leonardo DiCaprio recently pledged $7 million dollars from his foundation to support meaningful ocean conservation projects around the world. Ricky the Whale is very proud and eager to see more and more support like DiCaprio’s, and with the help of Tommy K. Studios launch of “Ricky the Whale and the Mysterious Medallion,” people of all ages can learn more about protecting our future oceans.
The newly published book lets readers see and learn how a simple whale can make a difference in the world. He is the new hero showing a new, creative way to spread the word about protecting the world’s wildlife. With his guidance, kids of all ages can learn how to help in protecting the oceans and wildlife in their own little simple ways for future generations.
The adventures of the hero have long been presented in the industry starting in 1968. His voyage was started by the craft of Tommy K., a cartoonist in Chicago at the time. Tommy K. says “After some years, the hero has always remained alive in my heart to share with readers a journey showing the defender of life and an agent of the seas who is willing to do everything to protect the one item that represents all life, and it’s great to see that many celebrities support our world’s ocean and wildlife. Ricky the Whale was created to help promote ocean and wildlife conservation. He’s a new kind of hero, and the world is aching for a hero like Ricky.”
Tommy K. Studios is now based in Tempe, AZ. The publishing of the book came with a free sample allowing interested parties to read the book at no cost. It features a free coloring book too that can be printed from the website. For individuals interested in taking advantage of these two, feel free to visit the website at http://www.rickythewhale.com
