Jess Lohmann, Speaker for Animals and Nature, is an eco fantasy author, voice over talent artist and ethical marketing strategist. Originally from the New York, she now resides in Germany (yes, she’s bilingual).
Her mission through her writing is to help individuals connect with and become active protecting Mother Nature by means of respectful communication and empathic activism.
Lily Bowers and the Uninvited Guest is the first of an eco fantasy series that shows kids they really do have the power and influence to make a difference and change the world. And save animals.
The 1st book addresses the heavy topic of animal testing in a light way. The 2nd book (already in the pipeline) focuses on the animal farming industry and the 3rd will be geared toward saving marine life.
The circle of life makes this world go round.
It just doesn’t stop. And that’s a good thing.
What’s also a good thing is that humans have the power, resources and knowledge to protect all life on Earth.
That makes us special. And, it makes us responsible.
Protecting nature and saving species while sharing a deep ecological philosophy through the stories of Lily Bowers is why Jess is on this planet.
It’s what Mother Nature wants her to do.

The Sustainable Development Goals
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were created by all 193 member states of the United Nations in 2015 to help improve the many global challenges we face today.
A 15-year plan was set to achieve all 17 goals. From combating poverty, illiteracy, climate change and inequality to restoring biodiversity, clean water and sanitation, economic growth, affordable energy, etc.
Many achievements have been made, but the work in local and national governments is very slow and so it is our responsibility as caring individuals to step up and help out.
We, the people, have the power to reach these goals through our businesses, volunteering, giving back, spreading awareness, etc.
The Lily Bowers book series aims to help individuals contribute to these SDGs:
If we don’t get #13, 14 & 15 right, nothing else matters.
Humans need nature and animals in order to survive and thrive. If we continue to drive species into extinction and destroy entire ecosystems, we will drive our own species into extinction.
Mother Nature is resilient. Humans? Not so much!
Giving Back to Nature
As a former member of B1G1, Jess has given back to various projects around the world that help reach all 17 SDGs in 2019. As a member of 1% for the Planet, she has pledged to give back at least 1% of all revenue from book sales and client projects to a partner charity (she’s currently research for the right partner) and 5% of book sale profits to Doctors Against Animal Experiments to help put an end to the constant torture of laboratory animals by promoting alternatives to animal testing.
Some of the projects funded included:
- 196 days of access to a solar lantern for families in India
- 34 trees to be planted in Kenia, Indonesia and Borneo
- The security of 2m2 of the Daintree rainforest in Australia
- The disposal of 1 kg of coastal plastic trash in Indonesia
- 20 bars of soap to be recycled in order to reduce waste in landfills in Indonesia
- 1 day of tracking and studying the endangered Australian saltwater crocodile
- 591 days of rabies vaccines for street animals in Nepal
- 8 education programs to learn about proper animal care and protection in Nepal
- 8 horticulture training sessions to children in India
