Act for the wild in your backyard: Small steps towards big changes for endangered species ~ Author talk and discussion with Isabelle Groc

When we are told one million species may be pushed to extinction in the next few years, what is next for us? What can we do? Does it matter? And what can our children do?  If human behaviour is the cause of the wildlife crisis, it can also be the solution. Wildlife conservation starts on our doorstep. You don’t have to travel to the most remote corners of the earth to engage with wildlife. Any step you can take to protect habitat and wildlife close to home makes a difference and helps create global impact.

Drawing from her newly released non fiction children’s book, Gone is Gone: Wildlife Under Threat (Orca Book Publishers) with foreword by Jane Goodall, Isabelle Groc will share field stories and photographs, showcasing what people of all ages, parents and children, can do together to engage with the wild in their
backyard and contribute to global conservation, one step at a time.
