My visits are available throughout the year. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the requirements for your school and get a quote for your schools’ ‘individualised’ visit.

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.
