Evie, 11 years old, Campaigns for Mary Anning

Nov. 13, 2018

She couldn't believe that someone as important as the pioneering fossil hunter, Mary Anning had no statue. Evie Swire ( who is the same age as Anning was when she found her first fossil ) has started a campaign for a statue to be built of the working-class Victorian woman whose discoveries helped to shape the theory of evolution. She has secured the backing of Sir David Attenborough.
