Children will be marching through Seaton to draw attention to the plight of wildlife in our seas at this year’s Natural Seaton Festival on the 21st July 2018.
Learning about plastic in our seas
Children from Beer, Seaton and Colyton Primary School have been learning about the effects of plastic in our seas and have been working with local artist, Louise Farwell, to produce some fantastic artwork that will be paraded through Seaton as part of this year’s festival.
The parade was the idea of Claire Mountjoy, Learning and Participation Officer at Seaton Jurassic who together with Meghan Knowles from Seaton Wetlands led interactive sessions with children to explore the rocky shore and understand the effects of plastic on marine wildlife. The children used their visit to the rocky shore as inspiration for the marine creatures that they created from recycled materials under the artistic guidance of Louise Farwell.
