Sir Peter Blake was New Zealand's most celebrated yachtsman who led his team and New Zealand to victory in both the Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race and the America's Cup. He was also a passionate and relentless champion for the environment, having spent his life on the ocean. Following his sailing career he turned his focus to helping protect the environment and raising awareness of the issues it faces, by voyaging to "environmental pulse points of the planet" and sharing what he discovered. He visited Antarctica to look at climate change, and then to the Amazon to look at the impacts of deforestation.
Tragically, Sir Peter was killed while carrying out this work. His death cut short his vision to allow millions of people around the world to care more about the environment and take action to protect it.
The Sir Peter Blake Trust (BLAKE) was established in 2004 and is dedicated to continuing his environmental leadership legacy. They do this by inspiring environmental passion in people through life-changing adventures and programmes that follow in the footsteps of Sir Peter himself.
