Emily: 10-Year-Old Champion of Rainforest Animals in Need is a photodocumentary book by Cathleen Burnham, fourth in her series featuring kids around the world involved in wild-animal rescue efforts.

In Emily: Champion of Rainforest Animals, we meet a real-life 10-year-old girl active in a youth program to save rainforest animals in western Costa Rica called Kids Saving The Rainforest (KSTR).

She helps care for an orphaned baby sloth at a local animal sanctuary and participates in other activities from dramatic skits for tourists to the sponsorship of rope bridges to help squirrel monkeys cross busy roads near her small town.

The story highlights the impact young people can have on protecting local wild animals and preserving natural habitats.

Like the first three books in this series (Doyli to the Rescue: Saving Baby Monkeys in the Amazon and Tortuga Squad: Kids Saving Sea Turtles in Costa Rica, and Tony and His Elephants, a Thai elephant sanctuary story) the text and photos shows young people directly active  in caring for the well-being of young wild animals in need of shelter, food, and lots of love.

The conservation message is clear and is skillfully blended into the glimpse of everyday life of active kids and their families.

In the past decade, photographer Cathleen Burnham has traveled the world, meeting extraordinary, real children who are active in wild-animal rescue programs. Her series of books and ongoing fundraising efforts, WAKA (World Association of Animals and Kids), works to bring to public attention the importance of wild animal rescue programs and the special role children can play in these efforts to save Earth’s endangered wild animals.

Ms. Burnham hopes these stories about global kids active in wild animal rescue efforts will inspire others to get involved in protecting animals and natural habitats, close to home and around the world.
