Aim

The Wildlife Story Series aims to encourage wildlife protection among future generations through emotive storytelling.  Turning tomorrow's potential wildlife consumers into wildlife protectors is our ultimate goal.

Project Brief

Tell a child a fact and there’s a good chance they will remember it. But tell a child a touching tale and it can stay with them for a lifetime. The Wildlife Story Series aims to do just that.

Illustrated children’s books will recount separate stories of globally-recognized, endangered and critically endangered, much-loved wildlife which inhabit our world – starting with the orangutan, elephant, and sea turtle and continuing with other wildlife. The stories capture the majestic beauty of these animals while sensitively discussing man vs wildlife conflicts and the plight of these animals. These tales will evoke empathy, love and understanding for wildlife, and aim to spark a long-term passion for wildlife protection among school children.

Format

The Wildlife Story Series features illustrated picture storybooks.  All books will feature a bilingual story in English and Chinese.  Each book also contains a blank section which children can use as a practical notebook.   

Target Audience

Illustrated wildlife story notebooks will be distributed to school children aged 6 to 15 years old in Hong Kong, greater China, and in Asia. We are specifically raising awareness among school children in these locations with the aim of helping turn today’s potential wildlife consumers into tomorrow’s wildlife protectors.

China, Asia and Africa countries are fledgling nations when it comes to wildlife protection. For instance, despite considerable efforts, Indonesia and some African countries remains a major source of and China remains a major end-destination for endangered wildlife. We aim to change this by showing China’s and Indonesia’s school children an alternative way to appreciate orangutans and other wildlife .

Project Partners

LumiVoce wishes to extend our heartfelt thanks to our partners and supporters, including The Nature Conservancy’s Hong Kong and Indonesia offices for crafting the orangutan story.  Ms. Chi Ying for the illustrations. Senso-Creative design company for the cover design.  

Publishing Timeline

We published the first picture storybook about the orangutan in the beginning of 2018.  We aim to publish an illustrated story every year, with the next in line being the story of the elephant, and then the turtles. 

The next phase of this project aims to have an electronic downloadable version for children and their parents to read on iPad and iPhone.
