Fledglings have been learning about the human impact on our oceans and today we saved the sea animals from an oil spill! 

We learned about the catastrophic effects of pollution on our seas, and what can happen when petrol, oil and chemicals end up in the oceans. We discussed what can happen to the sea creatures and to their habitats. It actually made some of us a bit sad.

The children then had a go at rescuing their animals from an “oil spill”! We didn’t like how the oil (and balsamic vinegar for the dark effect!) felt on our hands, and we could only imagine how horrid it must be for the animals to swim through!
