Zoo Scientists to the Rescue has been in the works for more than two years and I'm proud to announce it's launch! Once again I teamed up with award winning author Patricia Newman and editor Carol Hinz from Millbrook Press a division of Lerner Publishing Group for another project focusing on three amazing zoo scientists. Zoo Scientists to the Rescue focuses on zoo scientists working to help endangered species around the world. Zoo Scientists to the Rescue sheds light on the plight of orangutans, black-footed ferrets and black rhinos.
This was an incredible project for me personally because I grew up in Chicago exploring the Lincoln Park Zoo, the Field Museum of Natural History, and the Shedd Aquarium. To be able to return to film behind the scenes and feature Dr. Rachel Santymire's work studying black rhinoceros at Lincoln Park Zoo and in the wild to help the species survive makes my heart sing. I will be sharing these experiences in the coming weeks, but I just wanted to get the news out today about the release of our new book, Scientists to the Rescue, and the blog tour from other bloggers that LOVE science books for children and teens.
Please help us share the Zoo Scientists to the Rescue book and blog tour with your friends and family! Zoo Scientists to the Rescue is full of inspiration on how you can be involved in the solution to the many problems endangered wildlife face. We would love to get this book into the hands of as many kids and schools as possible but need your help! If you order from my website, I will personalize Zoo Scientists to the Rescue and share a free gift with every order!
