We asked Summer, one of our NMA Hosts, to talk about herself and her fantastic news.

“My name is Summer Snell and I live in Plymouth, England. I have a huge passion for the Ocean and its inhabitants and strive to conserve our ocean in the best ways possible. Recently I applied for a position on the World Oceans Day Youth Advisory Council and was very fortunate to be accepted. Here’s a little bit about me and what I’ll be doing!

Starting off as a volunteer, I have worked at the National Marine Aquarium for two years where I have always aimed to inspire our visitors about the ocean environment. When I’m not working, I enjoy being by the beach or doing textiles work; recently I created a bag in the shape of a whale which was whale-y exciting. (Sorry.)

The World Oceans Day Youth Advisory Council is a council dedicated to inspiring and connecting young people around the world on World Oceans Day. Their goal is to create a better future with a sustained, healthy ocean that benefits all societies. As part of this council I would be represent the council at conferences and develop a project to implement on World Oceans Day, amongst other things.

I am very fortunate to have this opportunity and am incredibly grateful to be selected.

To everyone at the National Marine Aquarium, I thank you for your support.”

On behalf of everyone here at the National Marine Aquarium we’re hugely proud of Summer and her achievement!
