Ocean Champion Winners

Ocean Champion Winners

Lorella Doherty from Taranaki challenged herself to pick up 10,000 cigarette butts during the 10 days of Seaweek. Not only did she achieve that but she was also voted the winner of our Senior Ocean Champion award & received $500 to support her work thanks to the New Zealand Coastal Society. Here she is collecting her award from the NZ Coastal Society’s Paul Klinac at our Bill Ballantine Memorial Lecture event in Auckland.
   
Our 3 Junior Ocean Champion winners were Room 6 Brooklyn School Motuka, Tī Kōuka Class Waiheke Primary School and Room 4 Makauri School Gisborne. They each won a selection of fantastic spot prizes from Auckland Whale and Dolphin Safari and the Auckland Outboard Boating Club. Thanks to everyone who entered and congratulations to all our winners.
