Stoke Hill Infant and Nursery School: Photo Ark Project

Children from Stoke Hill Infant and Nursery school have been making drawings in response to the work of photographer and conservationist Joe Sartore engaging with an international project called Photo Ark.

The project uses the power of photography to inspire people to help save species at risk before it’s too late.

“The children at Stoke Hill Nursery School became absorbed in learning about polar bears and endangered animals through their project work, raising over £250 pounds towards climate change and adopting a polar bear. We shared the photographs from the Photo Ark as part of the project which inspired the children to draw animals and animal features from their photographs. The project has now evolved into the invention of magical creatures, based on their recent experiences of studying and observing exotic animals such as a gecko and a bearded dragon. The children have started to devise their own creatures on the features and characteristics of the animals they studied, such as ‘My creature is really fluffy with sharp teeth – it can bite you but the bite can also heal you if you are hurt”.
