AN ISLE of Wight Mermaid appeared at Ventnor Botanic Garden with a mission to save our seas.

Fliss the Mermaid and Greg Chapman, of Curios Aquatica, presented an afternoon of entertainment in support of The Marine Conservation Society, to raise money for ocean conservation projects.

Greg performed a mix of juggling, magic, comedy and escapology throughout the afternoon and Fliss the Mermaid met people to spread the message about the importance of conserving the world's oceans.

Curios Aquatica's mission is to save our seas through education and entertainment.

This event was followed by an evening outdoor screening of The Greatest Showman.
