Watch as they play in the hollow of a tree
They keep many fields and meadows alive
By helping wild herbs and flowers survive

Magnificent and free with a barnacle on her tail

In the coldest waters, where only the brave prevail

An Elephant's Advice


Tun Tun is a baby elephant
Carefree, healthy and very intelligent
Jumbo is his strong, brave father
And Ayo his wise, beautiful mother



At six happy years and a half
Tun Tun is a forest elephant calf
That’s what elephant babies are called
And he’s already more than a metre tall



In the past century alone, 90% of African elephants have been wiped out - mainly for their ivory.  During the past decade, growing demand for ivory has led to a dramatic increase in illegal elephant poaching in several parts of Africa.


It is estimated that a staggering 20,000 African elephants are killed each year  - approximately 55 every day. 


Elephants, including African forest elephants like Tun Tun, are under threat. Learn about his life, the danger he faces, and the brave people helping him to survive in this beautifully illustrated rhyming story for ages 4+.

A Tiger's Tale




There once was a happy tiger
Who lived on the isle of Sumatra
With large green forests in which to roam
Many tiger families called it home



But people came; some broke the law
They cut many trees with a mighty saw
Men slashed and burned forests of the land
Destroying much more than originally planned
The orangutans fled; elephants; tigers too
After all was said, what could they do?



The Indonesian island of Sumatra is the only place where tigers, rhinos, orangutans and elephants live together. They are all endangered. However, the Sumatran rhino and Sumatran tiger are critically endangered. 


There are less than 300 Sumatran rhinos and less than 400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild.


Learn about the critically endangered Sumatran Tiger, the threats he faces, and the ways we can help him to survive in this beautifully illustrated rhyming story for ages 4+.
