REVIEW of a Weird Fish Lady visit:

‘Thank you SO much for giving us all the most wonderful afternoon today – we all loved it and the children were so interested and got so much from your Talk and Videos.  They simply loved hearing your answers to all their questions. 

Many thanks for taking time to do this for us.  It was such a super afternoon and tied in so well with this term’s Topic, ‘The Environment’.

We would love to have you back to talk to us in the future.’

I’m loving the images you’ve all sent to me!

HEY HUMAN – is a video that could change understanding about the environment – around the world.

Congratulations for amazing performances go to the pupils of Maazion and  Stoke Climsland Schools in Cornwall, UK.

This is incredible. 

Thank you Tanya Brittain – you have written a song that will inspire humans all over the world.

Do your pupils need to ask a question about Oceans – then go to the ‘get in touch button’ and ask. 

A recent question from an 11 year-old was ‘Are all Sharks Dangerous?’

Gloria’s answer: –

‘There are over 400 different species of shark in our oceans. Only three are really dangerous to humans – most of them are just pussy-cats!  But, be aware of swimming in new areas of the world, ask the locals about any water safety issues and if warning flags go up – get out of the water.

Remember, Oceans are not a human environment.  

It’s the shark’s territory. It’s their home, not ours!

Avoid Tiger Sharks, Bull Sharks and of course, the Great White Sharks. 

Please don’t go cage diving with Great Whites – this is only training these incredible creatures to associate food with humans – and can lead to future problems.’

Gloria works with an experienced team of professional educators at an organisation called

‘Footprint to the Future’

The team aims to provide teaching resources to help educate young people about planet Earth and its oceans.

Target Blue is a project aimed at improving student knowledge of the current marine conservation issues that affect life on their planet.
