Biographical Sketch

Jocelyn Arundel Alexander was born June 16, 1930 in Washington DC to Russell and Marjorie Arundel. She completed her BA at Smith College in 1952 and further studied at Sorbonne, University of Paris. She took a position with the International Union for the protection of Nature in the US after working in the Brussels branch of the IUCN. It was this work environment coupled with an "unforgettable" African photographic/study safari that directed Arundel to serious writing. Arundel writes, "I had come to realize that our children, and children all over the world, growing up amid swelling populations and vanishing natural frontiers, will have both a desperate need to find renewed contacts with nature and yet a harder time fulfilling that need. The toughest conservation problems will be their responsibilities." She has written over ten books on conservation-related issues for children.
