DISCOVER HOW YOU CAN SAVE COMMUNITIES DEPENDANT ON ECO-TOURISM BY SUPPORTING CONSERVATION OF ANIMALS IN THE WILD AND THE PLACES WHERE THEY LIVE
These e-books are being written out of a passion for wildlife and the communities who care for them. The constant poaching and dangers to our wildlife’s existence across the continent of Africa and elsewhere in the world has become a matter of urgent attention for all of us who would like to enjoy seeing their continued presence in Africa.
Meet The Animals is a series of e-books suitable for age group 11 years to 16 years, introducing conservation areas and projects, the animal, its habitat and behaviour, and why its conservation has become important.
We include genuine photographic experiences of observing the animal and its behaviour in its natural habitat. There are facts and projects that may further encourage your interest and concern for our wildlife and its conservation. We would hope that you would add your own conservation projects on our website. This would include fundraising projects for wildlife too. An added historical background of the animal’s earlier existence and the products it provides will enable you to form a balanced understanding of conservation.
The Ostrich was chosen as the first animal in the series because we attempt to illustrate the importance of the animal’s relation to its environment and its economic importance both in the wild and in a domesticated environment. We wish to highlight the important contribution wildlife makes to the continued economic upkeep and support of the communities they are found in. We hope that through the information provided on our website and e-books you will be encouraged to support conservation efforts by visiting and volunteering in existing conservation areas and their projects. We hope you will find our e-book series helpful and enjoyable. You will be able to share your news and experiences with other youngsters on our blog. You can also visit Peter Straile’s websites where you will be able to see many different animals photographed in the wild.
