When it comes to extinction, size doesn’t matter. When something disappears from the ecosystem, everything is affected. When it comes to taking action and sparking change, size also doesn’t matter. Little ones have the capacity to make a tangible difference in protecting wildlife, and Isabelle Groc’s newest children’s book speaks to exactly that. NatureKids BC is proud to announce the launch of Gone is Gone: Wildlife Under Threat, in partnership with the Museum of Vancouver.
Gone is Gone, published by Orca Books, covers important topics regarding endangered wildlife. In this book, kids can learn about endangered species, why they become endangered, how scientists study them, what people are doing to conserve wildlife and ways youth like themselves can help. Gone is Gone will be the first of the new Orca Wild series that explores lives of creatures with whom we share the world. It is packed full of rich images and even contains a foreword from Jane Goodall!
Isabelle Groc has an enduring commitment to environmental education and is passionate about engaging children and youth to experience the natural world. As a writer, wildlife photographer, filmmaker and a speaker focused on environmental issues, there is a lot to learn from her! Come meet Isabelle on Thursday, September 26 at 6:00pm at the Museum of Vancouver! We will be alongside her for the launch of this informative book that inspires children ages 9-12 to make small steps towards big change. This will be a fun evening, complete with drinks and appetizers, where participants can learn about local conservation efforts and how to get involved, hear stories from the field, and get a last chance to view the museum’s Wild Things: The Power of Nature in our Lives exhibition.
