Iupy the turtle was found on the beach by an English boy named Tom. When Tom arrived, he was a timid little chap and afraid of everything, but his friendship with Iupy the turtle gave him a new belief in himself and a new-found confidence. Iupy came to us from far, far away. He must have got lost or escaped from a ship that was taking him to a zoo where he would probably have spent the rest of his life in a cage.
Here at Europa Camping Village, Iupy is happy and has plenty of company. Iupy’s educated too.He’s been to university! He graduated with honours from Turtle University and is now busy teaching young turtles how to survive, deal with currents on their travels and grow big and strong.
Iupy’s best friend is JOHN “THE BOMB”, a big fat, carefree and happy turtle who loves to have fun and enjoy himself. John’s favourite food is toasted sweet corn and he’s always got a piece with him. Another of Iupy’s friends is a Newser the pink flamingo. He’s a journalist and has even founded his own newspaper: the Seven Seas Gazette. NEWSER travels all over the world and comes home with wonderful nature stories from the places he visits.
