A childhood interest in wildlife that became his profession, Steve Savage is a Biologist, Environmental Educator and Wildlife Author with over 30 years’ experience. Steve specialises in marine, freshwater and urban habitats including school grounds.
He is also the author of 44 books on wildlife for children, a book on whales and dolphins and has also written many articles for magazines and journals.
Steve works with school children and adult groups on various sites around Sussex and also works with schools helping them to develop their school grounds for wildlife conservation, to enhance teaching and as places for wellbeing.
He runs his own environmental education programme, but also works with other organisations including Shoreham Beach Local Nature Reserve and the Lewes Railway Land Nature Reserve and has a good knowledge of the habitats and wildlife on these sites.
Steve has a great interest in linking the local and global and with the help of two traveling bears Ed and Bella, he demonstrates how we all reply on the ocean every day, why freshwater is our most valuable resource, runs projects that help connect the local and global, as well as celebrating our amazing planet, its wildlife and people.
Steve has a great passion for cross curriculum teaching especially, as an author, linking science and literacy. However many projects also link other areas of the curriculum such as geography, history, art.
Steve also uses IT, including creation of short film clip, digital story telling and simple animation techniques such as stop motion animation and pixilation.
In a voluntary capacity, Steve is also a member of the management committee for Shoreham Beach Local Nature (since it was established in 2006), honorary member of Friends of Shoreham Beach, Sussex Regional Coordinator for the Sea Watch Foundation (since 1993) and Sussex County Recorder for Sea Mammals
The aim of this website is to provide a hub for the various projects Steve is currently involved with and links between these projects
