Animal Hero Kids Founder named as best environmentalist

The Broward Palm Beach Times Best Environmentalist list excerpt..

Susan Hargreaves-You’d be hard-pressed to find a more compassionate person than the founder of Animal Hero Kids, who will sweetly and patiently describe how cruelty to animals is the source of many environmental ills and then scribble out a vegan shopping list for you to follow. A watchdog of the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, she was an outspoken critic of last year’s bear hunt. Her main gig, though, is harnessing young people’s love of nature and empowering them to become leaders themselves.

Animal Hero Kids, a global Charity empowering youth, based in Florida, presented an Animal Hero Kids 4 Bears award to Khendall for his effective voice for bears.

Lil Bear, Khendall’s nickname since he was 3 years old, was in the news again, when he asked for an ad for bears for his 6th birthday. There is now currently an outdoor ad across from Ellen’s studio. Hannah, who is in the book “Animal Hero Kids Voices for the Voiceless” written by Susan Hargreaves, Animal Hero Kids founder, also appears in the ad.

Finally after wishing and wishing 6 year old Lil Bear did get his birthday wish.

On June 22nd it was decided in a 4-3 vote to hold off in 2016 killing bears.
This Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission ( FWC )decision made a 6 year old boy and a lot of other people -and Florida Black bear families- very happy.


We will still be displaying our ads to save wildlife.
