But where did the inspiration come from?
to create the characters?

Leah and David are based on the author's children. Those actors they meet during the adventure are based on real researchers. Each species is represented by a researcher who has a story linked to the conservation of the illustrated species. Each character includes, in a light and humorous way, characteristics of the honorees.
