We are in the City of London this week providing a variety of shark conservation events for adults and children. We started off with a lecture for the London School of Diving and then spent a day providing shark art for children and adults at SEA LIFE London Aquarium. Both events were great fun, we met lots of interesting shark enthusiasts and the full blog of the sharks we met at the aquarium and art work the children produced can be found at this link.





We explored the tourist highlights of London after one of our events and I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Piccadilly Circus, Big Ben, Downing Street, The Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square and Westminster Abbey.




London Environmental Educators Forum hosted us for an evening of shark education at Camley Street Natural Park and we were joined by Wise Oceans and the Galapagos Conservation Trust. It was great to share our work with like minded ocean lovers and talk about the importance of environmental education in conservation. Camley Street Natural Park is definitely one to check out for an oasis of peace and nature in the city.


Our events ended on a high with our lecture at the Natural History Museum of London. This iconic building never fails to impress me and it was a humbling and exciting moment as we arrived to present there. The talk was a success and the museum staff kindly gave us a behind the scenes tour of the museum. They showed us the Port Fairy Great White jaws known by many people and photographically displayed in a number of publications.





Next stop is Vancouver for a week full of Friends for Sharks events and also an author book signing at The Travel Bug bookstore for No Damage on Friday 27th February.


We are very excited to be on our way to Vancouver, so be sure to check out our public events in Vancouver and join us. The calendar of events is at this link.
