Jack Dalton the Kid Conservationist and author of Kawan the Orangutan-Lost in the Rainforest
Hi, I'm Jack, and I'm the Kid Conservationist. I am 13 years old, and I live in the beautiful state of New Hampshire. I love nature, animals, reading, playing board games, biking, watching and analyzing Marvel movies, traveling to new places, and doing anything fun with my friends and cousins.
When I was eight, I learned about palm oil and deforestation, and how the home of my favorite animal, the critically endangered orangutan, was being destroyed. I knew I had to do something about this. So, I combined my passions—YouTube, video editing, reading, and education—and I became the Kid Conservationist. Since 2019, I’ve been creating fun, educational YouTube videos, interviewing experts in conservation around the globe, spreading awareness through presentations to thousands of people at schools, zoos, and museums around the world. I have also been emceeing fundraisers and doing Keynote speeches. I even wrote a children’s book! https://www.kidconservationist.com/
Kawan the Orangutan-Lost in the Rainforest Book:
Orangutans have a very special relationship with their moms, so when Kawan the orangutan finds himself alone in the rainforest, he needs help.
Lucky for him, his friends from the rainforest help point him in the right direction.
Will Kawan be reunited with his mother, or will he be lost in the rainforest forever?
