Sarah Fawkes – Marine Education

Coastal Detectives is the culmination of my enthusiasms and experience blending my passion for Marine Ecology and children’s learning.

I was always more inspired by the sciences and practical subjects at school which led me to study for a degree in Marine Biology at Swansea University, where I also learnt to Scuba dive. Since then, I have gained my PGCE Early Years specialising in Science and have 8 years classroom experience from pre-school to Year 3. While my own children have been growing up, I have organised and run environmental activities for children at local events across the New Forest.

Now, with all my knowledge and experience I have started Coastal Detectives. It offers children a wide range of fun, science based, marine activities inside and outside the classroom.
