Children's books

"I want our children to grow up with conservation in their bones, to know no other way!" - Lulu

Some very sad and shocking news:

Wally Petersen was stabbed to death, in his home, on Monday 31 October. A really grizzly end to a good man.
Wally is the main character in my book: Sam the Toad in the Hole. He was an eco-warrior who fought tirelessly to save the environment.
The rehabilitation of Skilpadsvlei, in an effort to save the Western Leopard Toad, was just the tip of the iceberg.
* He assisted in starting up Baboon Matters,
* he was the co-founder of Kommetjie Environmental Awareness Group, KEAG
* he quietly fought developments that impacted breeding grounds for seabirds,
* the list goes on and on, a lifetimes work.

We have Wally to thank for so much.

An outdoor memorial service was held in Kommetjie at The Kom, hundreds of people attended. He was dearly loved and will be sorely missed.

He is testament to the fact that one man really can make an enormous difference!

Owalla has arrived....
