About The Event
CREATIVE CHILDREN’S WORKSHOP – Animal Eco-Warriors: Write Your Way Into Adventure!
Do you want to hear about amazing animals and how they’re helping people save the planet? Would you like to see if your pet cat/dog/crocodile has what it takes to solve mysteries too tough for humans to crack by themselves? Come along to this workshop with Tasmanian author, environmental scientist and detection dog handler Nic Gill. You’ll learn about some of the animal eco-warriors working with people to save our planet and hear about what it’s like to work with detection dogs. You’ll get to sketch out your own amazing animal adventure.
Nic Gill grew up in Tasmania, on a small farm with a large number of animals. She works to help people manage their local environments and lives in Hobart with her three-legged cat, a family of ring-tailed possums, some Pekin frizzle bantams, countless native birds, her human partner, James, and a dog called Zorro who’s in training to become a conservation detection dog, working to track down Tasmanian masked owls by sniffing out their pellets.
This event will be held in the Clore Learning Space on the first floor of the Visitors Centre at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, London. Please note that the Visitors Centre closes at 5pm so if you wish to look around you should do so before the event begins. All children taking part in the workshop must have a valid ticket.
