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:
- To provide grants and support to emerging and established conservationists from underrepresented groups who are doing wildlife-saving work.
- 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.

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.
