Conservation Coloring and Activity Books

Custom-tailored conservation coloring and activity books are an effective method to engage and inform children and adults in topics of local biodiversity, ecosystems, and conservation issues and solutions. I have been designing science education coloring books for over 15 years and am excited about the potential for sharing this tool with as many primate habitat communities as I can reach. Contact me if you would like to have a custom book designed for children in your community!

The first book in my primate conservation coloring book series was written and illustrated for the southeastern habitats of Madagascar, co-authored with lemur biologist Dr. Amber Walker-Bolton, University of Toronto, Scarborough, written in English and Malagasy. The illustrations (by Kathy West), activities and text provide information on lemur behavior, biology and natural history, and present conservation issues and solutions. Dr. Walker-Bolton has shared it with teachers and students in Madagascar in 2018 with great excitement from the teachers and students (see photos below).

Under development is a new edition for the PICC project in Masoala National Park, NE Madagascar. It is being co-authored by Kathy West and Pascal Elison, translated to the local Malagasy dialect, and customized for the local ecosystems, communities and conservation solutions.


Please feel free to download the 3rd edition of the book for SE Madagascar (RBC Lemur Conservation Colouring Book 2019) and share with children in your life – we are providing the book open-source so that more students can learn about conservation issues facing the lemurs.
