Emily: 10-Year-Old Champion of Rainforest Animals in Need
by Cathleen Burnham (Author)
Booktalk: Meet Emily, a real-life young girl active in a youth program to save rainforest animals in western Costa Rica called Kids Saving The Rainforest (KSTR). Emily helps care for an orphaned baby sloth at a local animal sanctuary and more.
“A baby three-toed sloth was brought in to the rehabilitation center this morning,” said Jennifer.
“Is he all right?” asked Emily.
“He isn’t injured. Hikers found him in the jungle. Must have fallen out of a tree. Will you take him for a sloth walk after the meeting? asked Jennifer.
Sure!” Emily loved any opportunity to handle these rare creatures.
