Hi there rainforest lovers!

Below is an excerpt from the book.
Can children make a difference? Yes! Here is one organization started by children: Two 9-year-old girls founded Kids Saving the Rainforest in 1999. KSTR invites participation by schools, children's organizations, and individuals worldwide so they can learn about the rainforest's ecological importance and set up programs to preserve and protect the rainforest and its wildlife. KSTR also encourages sound environmental practices in homes, schools, and communities.
Like these girls, you can make a difference. Find an issue you care about. Identify a problem that needs solving. Become a member of an organization that works for the environment. Help protect an endangered animal. Use your imagination and creativity to discover you specific environmental mission.
Immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring beauty of the natural world!
