New Children's Book Explores Human Impact On Wildlife
"Where Did All the Rhinos Go?" Teaches Children About The Environmental Impacts Of Poaching, Forging A Necessary Connection Between Humanity And Wildlife
"I want children to feel a connection to nature and to wildlife… By forging a connection with the natural world, people will be more inclined to fight for it; We need to plant the seed early," says Lara Jackson. "Most importantly, I want it to impact parents, who are in a position of power to make changes… The goal is to get people to care. Without caring, without feeling upset by what's happening to our wild spaces and wildlife, we cannot create change, or change the way the story ends."
Kelly Ulrich adds, "The message I would like this book to have is one of hope. A positive look to the future as we make an effort to be mindful of all life around us, no matter where we live."
Where Did All the Rhinos Go? is recommended for children ages 7+ and is available now on Amazon with worldwide distribution for £11.95, with ten percent (10%) of all proceeds from the sale of this book donated to charity in support of conservation efforts around the world.
