Tim Jarvis is awarded the Conservationist of the Year for his 25Zero project.

AS OUR 2016 CONSERVATIONIST of the Year, Tim Jarvis set a new record – the first medallion recipient to be recognised in this category and also that of Adventurer of the Year, which he was awarded in 2013 following his re-enactment of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 1916 epic Antarctic escape.

In 2015 Tim led another team effort with his 25Zero project, which aims to highlight the retreat of glaciers on the world’s 25 equatorial mountains. As a result of climate change, Tim says these glaciers will be gone in 25 years.
