Lorraine has a Zoology degree from Trinity and has conducted numerous biology and sustainability-related workshops and field trips while working for the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group, the Irish Wildlife Trust and Global Action Plan.
Classroom visits could include discussion and games on whale and dolphin biology and ecology; introducing marine ecosystems; threats to marine life from overfishing, pollution and plastics; introduction to biodiversity and Irish wildlife species; discussion and games on sustainability, including sustainable food production, waste and water.
Outdoor field trips could include a trip to the seashore to explore the coastline and look for the different types of fauna living in rockpools. An introduction to marine ecosystems plus the importance of rock pools as nurseries and threats to marine life from pollution and overfishing could also be covered.
