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!

Who is Dr. Mireya Mayor?

Mireya Mayor is an amazing scientist! Her love for animals and nature has taken her on incredible journeys, from studying mysterious primates in the rainforests to searching for hidden creatures in remote jungles. In fact, during one of her research expeditions, she played a crucial role in uncovering a previously unknown species of lemur, which happens to be the tiniest primate on our planet. Mireya's persuasive skills and commitment were instrumental in convincing the leader of Madagascar to preserve the habitat of this newfound species as a national park. She's an inspiring role model for young people who want to follow in her footsteps. We had the opportunity to ask her several questions. Check out our interview!

“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.”
- Thomas D. 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
