July 2021: Students from Oak Tree Special Educational Needs School in Truro came to see us as part of their Eco Week. We met at The Gannel Estuary. Some students had a talk about plastic and participated in a litter pick. All of the students went crabbing. They learnt how to make a friendly crab line, the crabbing code of conduct and all about crab behaviour ecology. All the crabs were released 🙂
Sept 2021: 10 students from Oak Tree Special Educational Needs School in Truro went out on a boat. The Atlantic Diver (Newquay Sea Safaris and Fishing) from Newquay harbour. Some of the children had not been on a boat before and may not have been afforded the opportunity to. We had a fantastic time and were able to discuss topics like tides, weather, sonar, engines and marine life. We pulled up a lobster pot and had a look at our catch too.Some feedback we received from the children were” It was probably one of the best things I have ever done” “It was super good because we were really deep””We went to see the lobster box and it had two in there!”
Sept 2021: Students from the ‘Learn You Way’ programme met us on Towan Beach. We had an outdoor classroom session around plastics in the environment, a visit from the aquarium with some of its inhabitants and a litter pick. The students were enthusiastic and very keen to meet the huge crabs!
October 2021: We were able give a short presentation around plastics and facilitate a beach clean for a church youth group from City Life Church in Truro. The group cleaned up at Fistral beach where they removed 3kg of litter from the environment!
