Kasthurie Govender, a mother of two from Durban has penned a book intended to impress upon children the importance of tackling climate change.

A passionate nature lover Govender hopes to have an impact on children and help to preserve our planet for future generations with her book Rosy and Friends. She says the goal of the book is to raise awareness about threats to our delicate ecosystem.

“Climate change is real and yes, it is affecting us in many ways that we can see and feel – heat waves, droughts, flooding, storms, decrease in crop yields, rising sea level, to list a few,” said Govender in an interview with IOL.co.za.

“This book will help the reader learn and understand the serious environmental issues we are facing such as global warming. The reader will also learn about plastic pollution and how it adversely affects wildlife, wildlife habitat and humans.

“As a solution to help alleviate these global environmental issues, the reader will learn about and how to – recycle, reduce and reuse.

“The aim of this book is to help children become more aware of current environmental issues we are facing globally.”

Govender has tried to make the difficult topic as plain and easy to understand as possible.

A keen photographer, Govender says that the abuse of our environment is something that weighs heavily on her heart.

“I simply love taking photos of Mother Nature. Always passionate about Mother Nature, her beauty and wonder.

“But just look around we can see the abuse Mother Earth has been subjected to by her children, that’s us the inhabitants of Planet Earth. It is vital that we stand up and take the necessary steps to try to undo or rectify or make some BIG changes to help bring about some balance to Mother Earth. We can start by changing our old habits of using plastic and polluting the land and oceans. 

“We have managed to abuse every part of Her (Mother Earth’s) being. I realised I could not just sit back, watch and complain. I had to do something to help stop this abuse. Educating children is vital as they are the future.”
