King Charles co-authors a children’s book about environmental threats


The Ladybird Book “Climate Change” will be released the following month.

Last Friday, the King welcomed international leaders to Buckingham Palace to encourage efforts to restore the natural environment. The book’s co-author, Head of Natural England, Tony Juniper, said the King wants to empower youth in his remarks at the reception.

Government, industry, nonprofit, and indigenous community leaders attended the royal reception to support more aggressive biodiversity protection measures after countries’ pledges at the COP15 UN summit in December to stop the so-called “sixth mass extinction catastrophe.” The variety of living things, or biodiversity, is dwindling more quickly than at any other period in human history. At  COP15, world leaders decided to halt species extinction and raise £167 billion ($200 billion) annually for environmental protection. About 200 nations vowed to safeguard 30% of the world by 2030 as part of the historic agreement known as the Global Biodiversity Framework, which will allow wildlife to flourish.

King Charles devoted a significant portion of his life to environmental advocacy. He organized a November reception to discuss combating climate change before the UN COP27 session in Egypt. The King’s reception came after a significant government gathering intended to launch private fundraising to fulfill commitments made at the COP15 conference of the UN in December 2022.
