The Floogle team take a group of students to Greece to work with a turtle conservation charity who are protecting nesting Archelon turtles. These short documentaries explore three very different students and how they are processing this unique experience.


Toby

Toby is 15 and goes to Eastbury Community School in Barking and Dagenham, a Borough that has the highest unemployment rate and lowest income per household in London, yet like any young individual deserves the opportunity to travel, explore and learn outside the classroom. Toby loves sports, and although quite shy he comes out of his shell when surrounded by his close friends. He has a passion for the outdoors, and ecology and this experience certainly helped him to build his confidence and connect with the natural world.


BETHANY

Beth is a bright and bubbly bundle of joy, she's 14 and goes to Eastbury Community School in Barking and Dagenham, a Borough that has the highest unemployment rate and lowest income per household in London, yet like any young individual deserves the opportunity to travel, explore and learn outside the classroom. While Bethany is a confident character, this experience opened her eyes to both local and global issues and made her realise the impact that she can have in the world. Did this trip create a career path or lifestyle that she didn't know existed?


Kian

Kian is a very quiet individual, it's often quite hard to even hear him speak but at 15 he already has a massive passion for Marine Biology. He goes to Eastbury Community School in Barking and Dagenham, a Borough that has the highest unemployment rate and lowest income per household in London, yet like any young individual, deserves the opportunity to travel, explore and learn outside the classroom. During the pre-departure lectures, his knowledge and eagerness to learn were a testament to this personal and professional pathway.
