Marty’s World: Meet Edmund

Marty’s World: Meet Edmund

My bother is called Edmund.
He’s soon 12 years old.
He enjoys going swimming,
even when it is cold.
He loves going snorkelling
at the seaside,
and plays by the rock pools
when it is low tide.

He wants to protect
all the oceans and seas,
and make sure the water
is all plastic-free.
His dream is to learn
how to dive in the deep,
and see in real life
a pretty “leaf sheep”.
He loves the anemones,
sea snails and slugs,
and he’s equally friendly
to beetles and bugs!

Favourite Quote
Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it.

Edmund is named after Edmund Burke (1723-1792), who was an Irish political philosopher and statesman often regarded as the father of modern conservatism. He wrote about the importance of moral stability and was a proponent of underpinning virtues with manners in society.
