It’s where many species of animal raise their young, as it’s a protected space where they can learn to swim and grow up in safety – Isla and Molly fit right in with a young sea lion.

Monty then takes Isla to catch and tag endangered hammerhead sharks and then takes both girls snorkelling with sea turtles, sea lions and stingrays.

The girls are delighted by it all. Inspiring them to care and protect the planet is probably the best conservation project Monty will ever be part of.
