The Elephants You Will Never Forget

Follow Amari’s journey (in red) from the beaches of Mozambique to Zimbabwe’s Phundundu Wildlife Area, a 115-square-mile former trophy hunting tract in the Zambezi Valley ecosystem. The greater region has lost thousands of elephants to poachers over the last two decades. The Akashinga (“brave ones” in the Shona language) patrol Phundundu, which borders 29 communities.

The Great Elephant Migration

Dedicated to Protecting Animals and the Natural World

OJIE, The Origami Grasshopper is the first adventure story in a new educational series for children. Like so many of us the state of our planet is a very real concern. Helping children learn to appreciate the beauty and magic of nature will benefit their lives greatly, and create a generation who will make caring for our planet priority one. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I enjoy creating it.

Planting the Seeds of Change

When you buy OJIE, The Origami Grasshopper, you help plant the seeds of change that will blossom into a better world. By reading this book, your children will learn what’s at stake and begin to build habits of protecting, preserving, and respecting nature.

We cannot continue to ignore the reality of animal abuse and neglect. Too many pets, livestock, and wild animals are suffering at the hands of humans. The result is devastating on many levels.

“The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated” – Mahatma Gandhi
