In an age of environmental uncertainty and a world in which the consequences of human actions often remain hidden from view, it’s easy to turn a blind eye or let someone else confront these problems. However, the young characters in this book do exactly the opposite. In these stories, we see how they bravely take on powerful corporations and battle against adversity to uncover the shocking truth behind environmental crimes such as illegal animal poaching, shark finning, and logging, and ensure that those responsible are held accountable. Join them as they take a stand to protect these vulnerable, voiceless creatures and learn some important lessons along the way.

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.
