Gloria Barnett - The Weird Fish Lady
Thu 24th September 2020 at 7.00 pm - 8.00 pm
Gloria will be speaking to us on Thursday 24th September. Visiting Rotarians and guests will be most welcome.
Gloria is a passionate and well-informed champion of marine conservation. She is an ocean adventurer, scuba diver, film-maker, scientist and an educator who has recently turned her hand to writing books for children, young and old. Her exciting stories are aimed at helping young people to understand the issues that threaten every one of us, as we all depend on an unpolluted ocean environment. Many young children in the UK know her affectionately as: ‘The Weirdfish Lady’ due to her primary school workshops, assemblies, talks at parent evenings and her published teaching resource material. Apart from her writing, Gloria has shared her message to a number of interested groups as an international speaker. Her presentations and books are based on her underwater encounters in seas around the world. She has swum with sharks, been attacked by an angry Trigger Fish, got stung by a scorpionfish and fought off a deadly Sea Krait (sea snake) in the waters off the Philippines. She has amassed extensive film footage and stories of strange and amazing sea creatures.’
During this difficult time we are meeting online twice per month on the 2nd and 4th Thursday's at 7pm via Zoom.
Visiting Rotarians and guests are always welcome but please contact us beforehand, using the 'Contact' option below, so we know to expect you and don't leave you in the Waiting Room.
Members will be advised of the connection details nearer the time.
