Ambassador's Update

Our Jurassic Coast Ambassadors have been busier than ever. Here's some of the things they've been up to all along the coast over the last few months.


Emily Cowper-Coles accompanied the Jurassic Coast's Youth delegation to the 2015 World Heritage Youth Summit, held in Blaenevon in Wales. Emily acted as a mentor and expert for the young representatives of our World Heritage Site. You can read all about the Summit from Youth representative Hannah Graham here.


Martin Curtis recently spoke at Dorchester Children's Centre's "Saturdads" group. Martin spoke all about the value of fossil hunting on the beach as a fun, free and healthy family activity. He showed some top finds from his personal collection and spoke to the Dads in attendance about the best spots on the coast to look for fossils, and how easy they are to access.

Our East Devon Ambassadors assisted at our first ever event for Ladram Bay Holiday Park, one of the Jurassic Coast Trust's new Business Partners. Tony spoke to park guests about the history of the World Heritage Site, and Tony and Donald led a walk from the park, with its iconic red sea stacks, to Sidmouth. The event was very well-received, and will hopefully be the first of many that we run at Ladram Bay.
