This weekend, our village is celebrating the diverse marine life of the Isle of Man. One of the main attractions is the marine life mega tanks. Local divers fill these seawater tanks with marine creatures. A chance for the public to see how rich life is in our seas and how fascinating its inhabitants are.
Rock pooling is one of our favourite activities, has inspired these biology plates, and our son wants to be a marine biologist when he grows up. So our family volunteered to talk to the public over the weekend, allowing everyone to get up close and personal with these formidable aliens from the sea. This inspired the 4 beautiful Royale Maps biology plates on rock-pool creatures!
We are grateful to the Manx Wildlife Trust for organising such an incredible event that involves biologists, divers, students and more. This is the perfect break for us, as we just finished drawing the map of the Hawaiian Islands...!
