I had a lovely chat this evening with Amelia Lionheart, author of the children’s JEACS series. We will be interviewing her in June for our Women Working in Nature and the Arts series. She has written a series of books involving the Patel characters, who travel to different places in the world and discover interesting animals.
JOIN THE JEACs J – Junior E – Environmentalists A – And C – Conservationists in their first exhilarating adventure! The Patels – Rohan, Anu, Gina and their cousin, Nimal – live on a wildlife conservation in North India. Travelling home by train for the summer holidays, the children not only acquire a new addition to their family – Hunter, the dog – but also meet Peter, a young detective, who grew up on the Patiyak Wildlife Conservation with them. Peter has been assigned to their Conservation to deal with the problem of peacocks being killed for their feathers – peacock feathers can be sold at exorbitant prices! Angry and upset, the youngsters assure Peter they will assist him, to the best of their ability, in saving the birds. While making plans to save the peacocks, the Patels decide to form a group called the “Junior Environmentalists and Conservationists” (the “JEACs”), and invite young people who want to protect animals and save the planet from further destruction to join up. Upon reaching home, the JEACs set off on their investigation to discover the crooks and bring them to justice.

in their second exciting adventure!
Over the Christmas holidays, the JEACs – Rohan, Nimal, Anu and Gina (two boys and two girls) and Hunter, their dog – are invited to Brisbane, Australia, to help in the set-up of a new Conservation for sea creatures in the Gold Coast area, which will have a particular focus on dolphins. They meet Amy and Mich (two Canadian girls) and the seven of them become a
closely-knit group, using their various talents for the Opening Day of the Conservation. Naturally, they fall in love with the dolphins! However, villains who own a shooting lodge in the Gold Coast do their best to cause trouble and prevent the Conservation from opening, but the youngsters are determined to foil their attempts. Will the JEACs succeed?
