Our Environmental Hero This Quarter
We are happy to announce our new Environmental Hero for this quarter is David Casselman!  

David Casselman, as he puts it, feels called to the herculean 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 on animal rights cases in addition to successfully championing litigation and teaching law classes in California.

Now retired from law, he pursues his passion to protect animals and their environments full-time. He is the founder of the Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary and has been actively involved in the Whale Sanctuary Project. He has also partnered up with Lek Chailert and Darrick Thompson with the Elephant Nature Park

As the founder of Ecoflix, the world’s first non-profit streaming service devoted to education about nature, animals and related ecological issues, David champions causes around the world. He hopes to use this avenue to reach like-minded people who are passionate and will take action to save animals and the planet.

Thank you David for making a difference!

What's a Numbat?
In November, we celebrate World Numbat Day. So what in the world IS a numbat?! 

Sadly, Numbats are an endangered native Australian species. Between losing their habitat and being preyed upon by animals, there are only about 1,000 left in the wild. Thankfully, the Perth Zoo in Australia has dedicated themselves to helping protect numbats and they have a great numbat breeding program! Another group that is helping is Project Numbat where they raise money to support education and conservation of this species. Watch a video on numbats!

Numbats are like anteaters. Their favorite food is termites and adult numbats need to eat about 20,000 a day! To do that, their tongues are very long - a little over 6.5 inches long. They take good care of their babies for more than 4 months before the little numbats will learn to walk and eat on their own.

Environmental Non-Profit or NGO Highlight

Friends of Bosque Del Apache

One of the birds that my friend Thomas D. Mangelsen loves is the Sandhill Crane.  I never paid that much attention to birds because I really love big mammals!  But when I went down to Southern New Mexico to visit my father, I stopped at the Bosque Del Apache.  This place is a gathering place for the cranes come wintertime. I took my Canon and grabbed a few photos. This will be a regular stop for me from now on!  This habitat is supported by the NGO Friends of Bosque Del Apache. See this beautiful video of these amazing birds and the Bosque (video by Mick Thompson).


In honor of our new book release, we are giving away Hope for Kareem: The Brave Chimp. Learn about chimps and join Kareem as he journeys from a medical laboratory to a safe new home with Project Chimps. Beautiful illustrations by Andreas Wessel-Therhorn!
