I am pleased to announce I have joined the advisory council of Conservation Nation

As anyone who visits this site knows, I am a huge supporter of the conservation movement and do my best in my books (particularly the FunJungle series) to educate readers about environmental issues.

So I am pleased to announce that I have joined the advisory board of Conservation Nation. This organization has two goals:

  1. To provide grants and support to emerging and established conservationists from underrepresented groups who are doing wildlife-saving work.
  2. To engage and inspire underserved high school students to explore careers in conservation through programs that offer experiential learning, access to field professionals, and micro grants for projects close to home.

You can learn more about this great organization by clicking here.

Or you can learn how to get involved by clicking here.

I had my first meeting as part of the advisory committee on education yesterday and I could not be more impressed by the people who work for CN, the plans they have and their commitment to both the planet and to the next generation of conservationists.

  1. stu,
    do you have any rough (very minor) plot trinkets for ss10 that you can share?

  2. THE REAl nerf boy 10 –

    When I am ready to share anything about the plot of SS10, then I will blog about it.

  3. Cool! I wish I could donate money to some sort of conservation effort. The only problem is I don’t have any.

    (P.S. I can’t believe I haven’t visited this site in, like 2 years.)

  4. This is awesome! Really glad that you are helping such a great cause. On an unrelated note, what website do you use to write drafts for your books?

  5. Mr. Gibbs, that is amazing! I have a question for you: Have you been following Cop26? It is the 26th United Nations Climate change conference for those who don’t know.

  6. Stu-
    Good for you making onto the board!

    My actually reason for writing this was to ask if you remember what books your school had you read around late middle school to high school. I was asking because it seems the curriculum is removing most of the (wonderful) classic books they used to read like the lord of the flies (great book) and to kill a mockingbird (even better book). Now in my curriculum which my sister is almost through the only ones that seem to remain are Fahrenheit 451 (great book) around mid high school and the catcher in the rye (which I still need to read) around junior.

  7. Spy School Enthusiast –

    I do not use a website to write drafts for my books. I write drafts using Pages.

    Honestly, I don’t know how recording an audiobook works, as i have never seen it done.

  9. Bassy –

    Yes, schools are removing some great books — but often, they are replacing them with other great books. The problem is, there are just too many great books. That was the case even when I was in school. Sometimes, you just have to go read an iconic piece of literature on your own.

    And back when I was in school, we read some books that I HATED (like Ethan Frome and Crime and Punishment). I would have much rather been able to read something like A Wish in the Dark or The Hate U Give than those books.

    Books I did like: A Separate Piece, Fahrenheit 451, The Great Gatsby.

  10. Mr Gibbs-

    That’s amazing! The CN sounds really cool and I couldn’t be more happy for you!

    My parents both work to try and solve climate change and my dad was just at Cop26 for a week (as an observer), so for me it’s extra special

  11. Mr. Gibbs –

    This is awesome! This is phenomenal work that you are doing, and we need more people like you to help underserved communities and students to be inspired to work toward a better world for all of us.

  12. Congratulations! Conservation Nation sounds wonderful!

    Side note: I haven’t been active for over 6 months here and I stopped reading Mr. Gibb’s books for a while (why do i have so much hw?!) but I’ve been rereading them and getting around to a few I haven’t read yet. I’ve been noticing so many little details I’ve been wanting to obsess over so I’m back.

  13. I’m a spy…

    When I am ready to share info about SS10, then I will post all about it.

  14. Hello, this is not related with you joining conversation nation (by the way, congratulations, I support them), but I have an interesting question:
    So, I was doing a book report on Spy Ski School for my 6th grade core class and I was looking for spy music and came across something on melodyloops.com called the Ripley Suite https://www.melodyloops.com/tracks/ripley-suite/ (it was categorized under spy and mystery), do you know about this and if you do, is it related to Spy School or is this entirely coincidental? Sorry to bother you, just wondering.

  15. Mr. Gibbs-

    In Spy School at Sea (SS9), Ben says “‘It’s already bad enough that we let her know that everyone in her family is a spy!'” Does this include the entire Hale family or just the ones Ben knows about?

    It is really cool that your parents do that!

  17. A curious reader –

    I believe this is a coincidence — or if it’s an intentional reference to my books, I am not familiar with the person who created it.

  18. Ben Ripley –

    Since the story in Moon Base Alpha is fictional, we can probably assume that MBA opening on the moon is not going to happen.

  19. Because this is not a troll, and I repeat 100% not a troll at all, I can confirm that the U.S. is working in cooperation with the M.A.O.I.E. (Mars’ Association of International Explorers) to make an official base on the Moon.

    While this may seem highly unlikely, there is a large amount of evidence that has been piled up, although nobody has seemed to notice it. F

    First of all, Mr. Gibbs obviously has ties to the CIA, as he was among the first to figure out the link between spies and the CIA, referenced multiple times in his hit book series “Spy School”.

    Secondly, Mr. Gibbs wrote Moon Base Alpha after writing Spy School, meaning that he had already established ties with the U.S. Government. In a private zoom meet-and-greet, Mr. Gibbs revealed that he had inside knowledge of NASA, and was working with multiple well established people working there, as well as a branch in the M.A.O.I.E. while at the time people did not know what the Acronym stood for, Mr. Gibbs referred to it in his novel “Waste of Space”.

    After all of this information, and multiple other leaks, it became clear that Moon Base Alpha is very real, and will be coming in the foreseeable future.

    If you think that this is false or fake, it is not. It is totally real.

  20. Spy School Enthusiast-

    Nice one. To be honest for the first 2 paragraphs I actually was fooled.

  21. -Ben Ripley

    I’m not trying to be selfish or anything but there already is a Ben Ripley on this website,

    Other Ben Ripley-
    I can change my name to Teddy Fitzroy if you want.

  24. Cat Santa –

    I think Mr. Gibbs said he does not like it when people rank his books, when people, including me, started doing polls like this. Please do not tale this offensively. 🙂
    But I know I sound like a hypocrite, but my favorite of his books is TLM1.
