Fossil inspires ‘Think Footprint’ project

A prehistoric relic is the basis of a new community project to inspire people to think about their environmental footprint..

Author Jo Earlam was inspired by a reptile fossil in Sidmouth Museum, which caused her to think about the changes in the area over 240million years. The fossil was found by geologist Dr Rob Coram near Sidmouth.

Mrs Earlam launched the Think Footprint initiative, with the aim of setting up a not-for-profit organisation, and is working with the museum and Sidmouth Science Festival to raise awareness of harm being done to the planet by mankind. The Tipton St John writer plans to create a children’s story about a reptile which leaves a footprint for people to find so that they think about the marks they leave.

She debuted the project at the Sid Vale Association’s cliff erosion exhibition on July 20, which marked 50 years since man first walked on the moon…

Mrs Earlam will collaborate once again with illustrator Mark Hannon who created the artwork for her previous books Tuamor the Turtle and Archie Space Dog.
