No more baby sharks! Climate change messages from Bristol children

Thompson, Miles



Melanie Ruth


Led by Bristol children, No More Baby Sharks is a delightful collection of their responses to our changing environment. Charmingly misspelt and illustrated, we hear the views and concerns they have for the world around them and the home we all share – the Earth.

More than 120 children from Ashley Down Afterschool Club and Ashton Gate Out of School Care, took part in the project which is included in a major climate change exhibition at M Shed Bristol from June to October 2022.

The project is backed by Sir David Attenborough who sent a message of support to the children.

The book contains more than 100 drawings and messages from the children in response to climate change and extinction. It’s a wonderful document whose overall message in one of hope.
