Honouring Jack

We pay tribute to Dennis Jack Beros who made a profound contribution to marine conservation through AMCS.

Dennis (aka Jack) coordinated the successful Save Ningaloo campaign of the early 2000s. This iconic campaign saw Ningaloo Reef protected from overdevelopment and ultimately achieve World Heritage status.

Jack served as secretary of the AMCS WA branch, was a member of the AMCS National Management Committee, and was made an Honorary Life Member of AMCS for his services to marine conservation.

Jack was creative, philosophical, warm and generous of spirit, with an impish grin; he was one-of-a-kind and a good friend. Jack always spoke of his children with deep affection and our thoughts are with them and his many family and friends.
