Take a moment and to read and listen to Olivia Crump's story on her experience as a Stars Peer Mentor.

When mentoring young people, Olivia quickly learnt being adaptable was one of the biggest ways to connect with the younger students.
For some students, they were reluctant and didn’t want to partake in activities, she found sitting down and having general conversations opened up students and changed the view on mentors to be relatable and less intimidating. This encouraged students to interact not only inside the classroom but during lunch breaks and after school.

One of the biggest takeaways from being a stars peer mentor for Olivia was the opportunities that came from the community project and doing something positive for other people. Meeting people through the community and the Graeme Dingle Foundation allowed Olivia to get her very first corporate job at Kerridge & Partners which is something she will always appreciate and remember.

Rescued sea turtles released into wild after rehab at Auckland's Kelly Tarlton's

Two rescued sea turtles are heading back into the ocean after recovering from serious health issues at an Auckland aquarium.

Two rescued sea turtles are heading back into the ocean after recovering from serious health issues at an Auckland aquarium.

The two turtles, Spock and Kibou, were released off Northland’s Tutukaka coast after a karakia on March 17.

Spock, a green sea turtle, was found on Muriwai beach in September 2020 with serious injuries to digits on both her front flippers.

She was taken to Kelly Tarlton’s aquarium and made a full recovery after getting the digits amputated.

Kibou, a loggerhead turtle, was found stranded in October 2019, also on Muriwai beach.

He had a severe shoulder wound and lung infection.

Kibous received urgent care from Auckland Zoo’s vet hospital, including intensive care and antibiotic treatments.

He gained 13kg ahead of his release.

“I would love to say that all turtles are as lucky as Kibou and Spock but unfortunately that’s not the case as there are significant threats facing turtles in the wild,” Louise Greenshields from SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton’s said.

Turtles face danger from “human impacts” such as boat strikes, entanglement, plastic ingestion or habitat destruction.

Earlier this year, a protected black turtle died after a boat propeller lacerated its shell and punctured its lung.

Team Turtle urges people to report injured or stranded turtles to the DOC emergency hotline on 0800 DOC HOT (0800 362 468).
