I have been in love with geology from a young girl. I had a mad, but lovely, uncle who introduced me to rocks, minerals and fossils in London University. Like Mary I was unable to pursue a career in that field as it was a strictly male world. So this effort, instigated by a young girl, warms my heart and ticks all the boxes!

I have always been aware of Mary Anning, and I have always been bothered that she never got much recognition for all the amazing things she has done for the scientific community. I was so thrilled to learn about what you are doing to erect her statue. Thank you for giving this amazing woman the recognition she deserves!

I just discovered Mary anning a while ago. I knew of her, but not as excessively as she deserves. What a story she has and one that deserves to be told. I hope her story becomes as immortalized as the fossils she found

You need a separate Crowdfunding campaign to give you money to go to the pub and chill out after these roadblocks happen. So calm down and keep going (or whatever the local idiom is for that) and we'll keep supporting you until the job is done. chris martinez

What s fantastic thing to do to give Mary Anning the respect and acknowledgement she is due. She is a lady who truly does rock!

Mary Anning - an unsung hero of the paleontology world, a personal hero and inspiration to many - past, present and future - who deserves to be celebrated internationally, but especially in her home town of Lyme Regis.

I was a young girl, Evie's age. when my favourite uncle took me to see the fossil collection at his uni department just off the Strand in London. where he worked. I went onto study A level Geology which was then a brand new subject. Long may young girls be inspired to follow where Mary led. I return to Lyme regis nearly every year to feel the air and see those cliffs.
