in their second exciting adventure!

The Patels - Rohan, Nimal, Anu and Gina - and their dog Hunter - have been invited to Brisbane, Australia, by Jack Larkin, a friend of their parents.  Jack wants them to help in gearing up towards the Opening Day (OD) of his new Conservation for sea creatures - "Aquatic Fantasia & Dolphin Bay" - and also to learn about dolphins in particular.

On the flight from Singapore to Brisbane, Rohan and Anu overhear a conversation between two men, which leads them to think that there might be people who want to prevent the Conservation from opening.  The Patels pass on this information to Jack.

Jack’s nieces, Amy and Mich Larkin, who live on a Conservation in Canada, have also been invited to holiday with Jack, and the six children get along like a house on fire.  The Canadian girls enthusiastically join the “JEACs”.  The JEACs go on various site-seeing tours - fun - and not so fun when Amy is accosted by Don, a nasty teen - and she loses her temper.

When ‘work’ begins, the JEACs are overjoyed at being requested to share their various talents in making the OD a success.  What a wonderful way to spend a holiday!  Snappy dialogue and waterskiing for Rohan and Amy; lots of writing for Anu; Nimal, Gina and Mich are included in the dolphin show, and Nimal also acts in the play for the seals.  Gina writes a song inviting children to the OD while Mich draws the cartoons for it - and guess what? All of them will be on TV - singing Gina’s song!  There are also many other things they can help with - and naturally - they fall madly in love with the dolphins.

In the meantime, John Ingram who owns ‘Wilderness Adventures’ where people can go and shoot animals, and is one of the men whom the children overheard on the plane, shows his hand.  He wants to participate in a panel discussion (part of an open-air campaign planned by Jack’s team to create awareness of the new Conservation), so that he can air his views in public.  Jack agrees and Rohan is chosen as one of the panel - to represent the young folk.  John's son is also on the panel - and turns out to be the same Don who accosted Amy.
