Marine Champion Project

Coral Smith from the Devon Wildlife Trust came in to school to meet the Year 8s and launch this year's Marine Champions Project.  The year 8s were able to tell her all about their visit to Devils Point last week. Coral was really interested in the amount of rubbish the class collected (3 bags) from the beach.  This led onto the two topics that the Year 8's could focus on for their Marine Champions project. Coral spoke about plastic pollution and the problems it causes for our marine wildlife and coastlines. She showed through a practical  demonstration how the pollution gets into the food chain and how  we can end up inadvertently eating the very waste we put into the seas. Next year we will be working closely with Coral and the Devon Wildlife Trust to develop a project that will highlight these problems  and how by changing our habits we can lessen the amount of pollution we are dumping in the sea.
