The Poppy Project

By Fiona Ingram & Poppy

Education & teaching, Environment & nature, General non-fiction, Children's | eBook


Poppy is Fiji’s most famous dog and her amazing journey has helped to highlight the desperate plight of animals in Fiji. Poppy arrived at the Animals Fiji Clinic with a brutal facial injury in March 2012. It appeared she had been struck by a cane knife, amputating 50% of her muzzle. With a dreadful open wound, she had been left to fend for herself, and by the time she reached the Animals Fiji Clinic she weighed half of her normal body weight. Had a Good Samaritan not found Poppy and handed her in, she would have died of starvation or as a result of her wounds. Due to lack of funding, the Animals Fiji Clinic did not have a vet on staff. However, thanks to a fantastically successful fundraising appeal, Poppy was airlifted to Australia in October 2012 for reconstructive surgery. Her journey was documented by the Australian television show, Bondi Vet. Poppy’s story is one in a million. Sadly, so many of the animals she left behind in Fiji suffer and die every day without treatment for illness and injury. Poppy’s book, The Poppy Project, is intended to raise awareness worldwide for the plight of animals in Fiji.

When award-winning children’s author Fiona Ingram first read about a little Fijian dog called Poppy that miraculously survived a terrible injury, she was moved to write a book about this amazing animal. Poppy’s road to recovery and a new life, her reconstructive surgery, and the love and support this little dog enjoyed have been inspiring. Since then Fiona has become committed to other stories to encourage people to support animal rescue organizations, and to pay tribute to the growing army of caring people that donate their time and skills to saving animals, both domestic and wild.
