Imogen Taylor-Creating the Next Wilderkids


Imogen Taylor is on a mission, one which has taken her on a journey from a successful career in law to now writing and illustrating meaningful books for children, and in this episode of MHP she explains why she wants to save endangered wildlife-with a little help from her readers.

Imogen discusses her latest book, the first in a series that features a delightful group of young wildlife warriors called The POWeS, she shares some of the complexities around writing about wildlife poaching for young people, and explains why she’s quite a fan of youtube.

Having been fortunate enough to travel around the world herself, Imogen reflects upon her deep desire to instil a love of wildlife and wild places in children, which includes visiting schools and creating meaningful life changing books.

Imogen Taylor is an author and illustrator of children’s books. A qualified lawyer , she left her job at a top UK law firm to settle in Australia, and dedicate her life to helping the planet through her stories. She volunteers at the charity Animal Works and donates a portion of her book sales to other wildlife organizations. Her latest book is The POWEs And The Disappearing Tusks, and she has just launched a new podcast called Wilderkids.
