UNESCO film featuring Kieran Glass at New York World Ocean Day Event

Kieran and his grandmother Felicity arrived back on Tristan aboard MFV Geo Searcher on 31st August 2017 after their epic trip to UK and USA. They departed Tristan on the maiden voyage of the Geo Searcher back on 25th April, so have been away from the island for over over four months. This puts into perspective how signifificant it was that a 10 year old school boy from the world's most isolated community could so ably represent the island by promoting the Gough and Inaccessible Island Woirld Heritage Site at the prestigious World Ocean Day on 8th June.

The photos were sent by Kieran's grandfather James Glass who remains in Cape Town before his planned return to Tristan aboard MFV Edinburgh later this month. James and his wife Felicity travelled to USA with Kieran for his special trip.
