With so many issues facing the environment today, it is easy to feel powerless. The young characters in this book are no exception, yet they courageously step up to face problems far bigger than they are. Read the stories of persistent earth activists as they fight for the rights of endangered animals and tackle big business. Journey with them as they discover what they’re made of and how much a single person can do to change the world.

About Our Authors
Young people often struggle to be heard, but Elephant Community Press offers opportunities for students to share their ideas with friends, family and the community at large. By publishing the work of young authors, ECP aims to demonstrate that there is an audience for well-crafted and thoughtful writing, no matter how old the writers are.
Our young authors range in age from 6 to 17 and attend both local and international schools in Hong Kong. They herald from diverse backgrounds, but share with us a passion for storytelling and the belief that everyone has something worthwhile to say.
ECP has worked with students from a wide variety of schools including Canadian International, German Swiss, Kennedy, Diocesan Girls’ Junior School, St. Paul’s Co-Ed, West Island, Braemar Hill, Diocesan Boys’ School, Singapore International, French International, HKIS, Glenealy and Renaissance College.
