Children's author Julia Heckathorn travels the world to learn about different ecosystems and endangered animals. She pours her knowledge into children's books, hoping the next generation will right the environmental wrongs of our times. As in many children's books, the main character in Heckathorn's stories is an animal. Unlike those other characters, though, this one is real - a kangaroo, that lives in the author's backyard. VOA's Penelope Poulou has more.
