Sticky Story saving species…
Melbourne Zoo Keeper Rohan Cleave is passionate about Lord Howe Stick Insects; he works with them, he’s an advocate for them, he’s the ASMP Species Co-ordinator and he’s even authored a book about them, with Coral Tulloch providing gorgeous illustrations. ‘Phasmid, Saving the Lord Howe Island Stick Insect’ is the first Children’s Book to be published by CSIRO publishing.
‘Phasmid’ was recently honoured in the Eve Pownall Award for Information Books at the Children’s Book Council of Australia 2016 Awards. Congratulations to Rohan and all involved in the project.
A children’s book is an effective way to engage younger audiences with stories about endangered species, and the work people like ZAA members are doing to help save these species from extinction.
