Join us at the Nashua Toadstool with New Hamshire's own Kid Conservationist, Jack Dalton. Jack with be signing his book, Kawan the Orangutan: Lost in the Rainforest.
Kawan the Orangutan: Lost in the Rainforest 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?
I am eleven-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, playing video games, 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, were 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 have been creating fun, educational YouTube videos, interviewing experts in conservation around the globe, spreading awareness through presentations to thousands of people globally at schools, zoos and museums around the world, and I even wrote a book (to learn more about these projects, please check below!).
My work has been recognized locally and globally, including being a Top 20 Finalist for the first-ever TIME Kid of the Year 2020, the President's Environmental Youth Award winner 2021, Action for Nature International Eco-Hero Notable Mention 2021, and the OURF Judge's Favorite award winner in their 2020 international video contest for my 10-in-10 Orangutans video.
