Who are the Green Kids Club and what do we do?

Green Kids Club focuses on spreading the word about environmental issues relating to people and animals through storytelling. We do this by working with conservation groups such as Elephants Without Borders, Saving the Survivor, and Blood Lions as some examples, and writing children’s books related to environmental issues they are experiencing. After publishing a book with one of these conservation groups we donate part of our proceeds to their organization. We also promote the story and issue through social media and by classroom experiences (virtual or real). Often our books are also given to children around the world to educate them about animals and their environment (we do this through our non-profit arm – Love the Wild Foundation). We hope the work we do will make a difference in this world and its animals!

Environmental Hero: David Casselman


David Casselman feels called to the task of changing hearts and minds about the importance of helping animals and the planet. An accomplished civil trial lawyer, David spent decades doing pro bono work to protect animals in addition to his successful career as a trial lawyer, law school professor, and animal advocate. In that capacity, he was actively involved in crafting legislation to help animals, including the California Hayden Law, which expanded the obligations of public animal shelters to care for animals in their possession throughout the state. 

Now retired from law, he has chosen to pursue his passion for protecting animals and their environments full-time.  Twenty-one years ago, he co-founded the one million-acre Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary and has been actively involved in The Wolf Connection in Los Angles and the Whale Sanctuary Project.  At the same time, he has worked as a partner with Lek Chailert and Darrick Thompson with the Elephant Nature Park

David has also been involved in selecting, supporting, and/often funding the production of movies and programs that support a wide variety of wildlife initiatives.  Included are Love and Bananas, Cher and the Loneliest Elephant, Free Billy, The Last Stand, Remaking Wolf Connection, and a series of Podcasts and several TV series now showing on Ecoflix. 

David is now the founder and CEO of Ecoflix, the world’s first non-profit streaming service devoted to saving animals and the planet.  Dedicated to biodiversity and almost every ecological issue, David champions causes around the world. He hopes Ecoflix will inspire the young and motivate like-minded people of all ages to do everything they can to save animals and the planet.

“The experience of seeing 399 in the wild will change a child’s life forever. Hopefully, this book will be a small entry into her world and make us all more considerate, tolerant and protective of bears and all of our earth’s special creatures.”
- Tom Mangelsen, Grizzly 399
“Humanity has an abusive relationship with the environment and all other species, and much of this is due to a lack of appropriate education and awareness during our school years. The Green Kids Club and books, such as A Tail of Three Lions, play such a significant role in filling this gap. In addition, by supporting the book you are also supporting lion conservation in the wild and efforts that are aimed at securing the survival of Africa’s most iconic species.” 
- Ian Michler, Blood Lions

Green Kids Club Supports

Non-Profit Organizations

For the last several years, Green Kids Club has been promoting educational materials and story lines with Elephants Without Borders (EWB). We have also co-written books with the Orang Utan Republik Foundation, Blood Lions, Cougar Fund, and Saving the Survivors. We believe these groups, and other organizations like them, are doing very important work on the front lines to save our wildlife for future generations. You can help make a difference too! When you purchase anything from our store, a portion of the proceeds goes directly to the wildlife organization of your choice.

And we here at Green Kids Club also have our own non-profit organization, Love the Wild Foundation.


Learn more about all of the non-profits we support on our Non-Profit Initiatives and Organizations We Support pages.
