Now Seeking Community Support via Kickstarter, Fossa Palooza is a Book about an incredible top predator, the Fossa of Madagascar! Fossa Palooza teaches children about Madagascar’s amazing biodiversity AND gives back to the local community through education and conservation support!

Cathryn Perry is an inspiring American author, wife and mother. Her previous job as a Zoo Animal Trainer and zookeeper inspired her to write about less-than-well known animals and the incredible places they come from. Each story is an effort to support habitat conservation and inspire the next generation of stewards of our earth. She has proudly announced the launch of her adventurous new hardcover children’s book about the amazing characteristics of the fossa. This one-of-a-kind story not only highlights the fossa but also showcases the diverse animals of Madagascar through incredible hand-painted illustrations made by a zookeeper and artist, named Claire Turner. The book titled, ‘Fossa Palooza’ is a fun factual animal adventure that aims to educate children about Madagascar’s top predator. 

To publish this book worldwide, Cathryn launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, aiming to raise funds for the book and, support for it’s important conservation message. The crowdfunding campaign goal is a sum of $7,000, to cover publishing, translating (into French and Malagsy!), custom fossa plushes and distribution of other limited-time rewards. Backers from around the world are welcome to make their generous contributions to the Kickstarter campaign by pre-ordering the book, supporting book donations to the families of Madagascar, and pledging for other educational and fun rewards like, painting pages! Children, educators and  animal lovers of all age groups will treasure Fossa Palooza for years to come, and the author is grateful for all backers participation in bringing this book to life with love and generosity. 

“My passion is spreading awareness of amazing animals and habitats in need through fun and beautiful children’s books,” said Cathryn Perry, while introducing this project to the Kickstarter community. “I am committed to donating a portion of yearly profits to related charities that hold a special place in my heart. After the fulfillment of the Kickstarter campaign for Fossa Palooza, 5% of yearly profits from book sales will go to Madagascar National Parks in support of their habitat conservation and community education goals,” she added. Cathryn is determined to make this world a better place, and she is welcoming everyone, from parents, to teachers, to animals lovers from around the world to support her initiative.
