We’ll kick off our day with a live assembly hosted by Lizzie Daly, TV wildlife presenter and Kate Jones from Marine Stewardship Council.

Today MSC will be helping us learn more about sustainable fishing. We’re going to watch a film called  “My dad the fisherman” and then we have a whole bunch of fun activities to dive into – a quiz to test your knowledge on overfishing, a lesson about using the oceans’ resources in a sustainable way and a super fun game that helps us understand how all the different species are connected in the sea.

You can join Greg Holder live to learn all about why we need sharks to protect the biodiversity of the ocean! He’ll teach us what role sharks play in the environment, share some amazing shark facts and help us understand what we can all do to protect them. At the end of the lesson you’ll be able to chat with Greg live and ask all your questions!
