Jack Tetley

Jack Tetley, a 13-year-old with a passion for ocean conservation, has received $8,500 to fund his attendance at the Trust for Sustainable Living 2018 International Schools Essay Competition and Debate in Seychelles.

Jack was the only New Zealander to receive an honourable mention for his speech on ocean pollution, in which he educated fellow students about the changes they should make to improve the world’s oceans.

He has been invited to the conference in Seychelles, where he will undertake a week of field trips to marine sanctuaries and attend talks by world leaders in global sustainability and marine conservation.
