Ann is Maltese, living in England, and Mummy to a very energetic one year old! (2021) Caring for the environment has always been a priority but somehow, with the birth of her son, this has intensified. She says “Things suddenly take on a new light; everything is seen in terms of what example it will set, and how it will affect him and the world he grows up in.” Ann is happiest when she is creating things and loves to try out different disciplines and use different media. She founded Dear Maggie to link these 2 passions, inspired by her school Environmental Studies teacher, Ms Maggie. Ann graduated as a teacher so motivating young minds is something that is very important to her, but education does not only happen in schools so she hopes to use this platform to educate and inspire others to live more sustainable lives.

Henry is a 7 year old (2021) on a mission! He believes David Attenborough’s view that “No one will protect what they don’t care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced”! His YouTube videos started as a lockdown project and led to great feedback from The Wildlife Trust, RSPB and others. He has made videos on a range of wildlife and conservation topics and written articles for a number of magazines. This led to Henry being appointed (2021) as a Youth Ambassador for the Beds, Cambs and Northants Wildlife Trust. He wants to encourage children and adults alike to be enthusiastic about just how ‘Naturetastic’ the world is so that we all do something to help protect it!
