Jack Jones, teen author of the new children’s book Chizi’s Tale: The True Story of an Orphaned Black Rhino, talked about his passion for conservation with Prince William during his recent visit to New York City.

Jones was invited to the event by Tusk, a leader in spearheading conservation efforts to aid rhinos and other endangered animals in Africa, to which all the proceeds from the sale of his book will go.

The charity, whose Royal Patron is Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge, invests in programs which use conservation as a tool to alleviate poverty, improve education and reduce conflict, while also protecting areas rich in biodiversity.

Chizi’s Tale is a heartwarming story about a family of park rangers (a mother, father and their three kids) who adopt a day-old baby black rhino to ensure its survival, all in the wilderness of Zimbabwe.

This children’s picture book was written by Jones, a Brunswick School senior, and illustrated by Jacqui Taylor (Publisher: Keras.).
