Mary Anning statue on CBBC Newsround

Evie is just 11-years old, but she is spearheading the campaign to erect a statue of the extraordinary paleontologist Mary Anning. The team at CBBC Newsround is following her mission over the next year. As the appointed sculptor, it was fun to be interviewed by Evie at the Charmouth Heritage recently and to visit a local school to see what they thought a statue to Mary Anning should look like. The Newsround website has more in-depth footage, including all the school children’s pictures –
