Meet Bernard the Gunard – He’s red, he’s got scales and fins, he lives on a seabed in UK waters, and he’s on a quest to make sure the UK’s marine wildlife gets the protection it needs. He is the new face and voice of The Wildlife Trusts’ ‘Petition Fish’ campaign.
He stars in an animation telling the story of his plight to find a marine utopia in the form of his very own MPA, a refuge for him and the other sea creatures he lives with. The animation contains a strong call to action – to support The Wildlife Trusts’ Petition Fish campaign. The aim of Petition Fish is to demonstrate public support for Marine Protected Areas by gathering signatures online, by text, and at Wildlife Trust events.
