We’re bringing the sea to London! Join us this October half term at Kidtropolis - a family and schools event - for virtual rockpooling, beach cleaning, games and to meet our life sized leatherback turtle, Tallulah.

Don’t miss our stand at the UK’s Best Children’s Event Kidtropolis, which will take place in ExCel London on 23-26 October. We’ll be running a series of educational activities ranging from virtual rockpooling, beach cleans and other educational games.

It will be the perfect chance to meet our inflatable life sized leatherback turtle Tallulah. She’ll have plenty of facts to teach about sea turtles to raise awareness of the presence of leatherbacks in UK seas as well as some of the perils of being a turtle.

We will have goodie bags for anyone who completes our activities!

Our seas and shorelines are home to a huge number of species, each one part of the marine ecosystem. Kidtropolis is only one of many events we attend to help people understand more about the importance of our oceans and the creatures that live in them.

We need to secure £50,000 for the next two years to make the case for new Marine Protected Areas and survey existing sites to prove just how effective they are. Your support is vital in helping us make this happen.
