Jan came face-to-face with a mountain gorilla in Rwanda and the experience changed her life.
When she realised there were fewer than 600 mountain gorillas left in the world, she wanted to do something to help, so decided to publish books for children on endangered animals.
To create the 15 True to Life Books, Jan travelled to China, Borneo, India, Sri Lanka, Uganda, Costa Rica and 10 times to Africa. She followed wild animals, taking photographs and writing about their survival. She is the ‘voice’ of the endangered animals to tell their true to life story.
13 exciting educational videos add fun to her inspirational presentations and creative workshops. Jan is a popular speaker at schools and festivals in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and throughout Australia. Her presentations are suitable for students from K to Year 6.
