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!

Leslie Weinstein

Our environmental hero this quarter is the inspiring Leslie Weinstein, the founder of Turtles Fly Too. This organization helps rescue sea turtles - and occasionally other aquatic animals as well - by flying them to locations where they can be rehabilitated and released back into the wild. 

Growing up in oceanside Florida, Leslie was fascinated by sea turtles' nesting habits. Leslie would watch, in fascination, as the turtles would crawl out of the water at night, lay eggs, and use their strong flippers to cover up to 200 small white balls with sand. Leslie knew that humans and animals often dug up the eggs, resulting in their destruction.

To prevent this, he began relocating the eggs to his family's beach, digging new nests, redepositing the eggs, and fencing them off with chicken wire. By doing this, successful hatchlings then returned to the beach the following seasons to lay their eggs. In 2010, Leslie and his wife made a decision to donate the beachfront acreage to the University of Florida to conduct research, conservation, and education. This beach is now critical for the University in learning all they can about the following seven turtle species – Loggerheads, Hawksbills, Greens, Olive Ridleys, Leatherbacks, Flatbacks, and the very endangered Kemp’s Ridleys.

In 2014, Leslie got the chance to incorporate another passion of his - aviation - into his turtle conservation efforts. He heard that an aquarium in New England had been overwhelmed by sea turtles that had been cold-stunned.  This happens when the water temperature in the ocean drops suddenly, causing the turtles' body temperatures to decrease to dangerously low levels. Leslie connected with pilots he knew, and a small group of aviators flew to recover the turtles and transport them to Florida for rehabilitation.

This was the beginning of Turtles Fly Too, which has rescued thousands of turtles since its inception. According to Weinstein, the number of cold-stunned turtles averaged fewer than 100 per season years ago, but that “has skyrocketed.” Weather patterns have become less predictable. The water off the northern United States stays warmer longer and then surprises the animals with a sudden drop before they can migrate south safely. “We definitely, have a problem with climate change,” he says, and the number of turtles needing transportation increases yearly.

See this video produced by Brave Wilderness, dealing with the issues surrounding cold-stunned turtles. You can watch the full interview with Leslie on our Youtube, or you can watch it here on the website at "Current Environmental Hero"

“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

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.
