2017 Roadshows

2017 Update.....its September now and there are lots of pictures of this year's work in the 2017 Roadshow photoalbums, and in the Rescue Training Creatures photoalbum. Currently making another iconic shark species to add to the Roadshow species list, and preparing for the next roadshow event, in the October half term week, Edfest Southwest.  At this amazing event, we provide lots of life-sized marine wildlife models and our "beach finds" display, and aim to inspire educators and family groups to engage with the marine environment and explore its diversity. See www.edfestsouthwest.co.uk

In February we returned to Portsmouth International Port for the Marine Wildlife Festival there, then on to ExCel in London for the Oceans Festival, part of Telegraph Outdoor Adventure Travel Show.  Before that,  in January, we finished a big order for rescue training creatures for a University at Juneau, in Alaska, including a Stellar's Sea Lion, and then worked on four seal pups for British Divers Marine Wildlife Rescue. March sees us start a big order for more rescue training creatures to be used at a University in Essex, and also we take the Marine Wildlife Roadshow to Abu Dhabi for the Mother of the Nation Festival. Later in the year are return visits to Oxford for their Wild Fair and to Torbay for a Marine Science Day to inspire school teachers and college lecturers to bring our marine wildlife into their teaching. Lots more interesting possible events in the planning stage, and enquiries for creatures to be made for others. See the photoalbums for more info on these.

New for 2013-14 Create a Marine Wildlife Zone at your event

Raise awareness of your local Marine Wildlife scene by creating a Marine Wildlife Zone at your festival, exhibition, public event, shopping centre, town centre, or any other location. Choose the marine wildlife species you want to focus on from our species list, add interactive presentations if you want, or tabletop displays of beach finds and small sea creatures, childrens craft activities including clay modelling, and more options. Available in UK and worldwide, for large and small events, it is a great way to raise awareness and provide a different attraction for your event.
