Jack's Story

Welcome to the world's first super prawn ocean hero entitled "Jack the Super Prawn."  The concept was created more than twenty-two years ago.  Jack was born in Whitehaven Beach, the Great Barrier Reef, Australia.  Created, made and wholly-owned in Australia.  Jack is unique and may be used as a 'Mascot' to advertise and market a product that is in line with the sustainability and preservation of our oceans environment.  The central character in a series of children's books,

songs and mobile game etc. 

 

Jack is an adventurous, brave, vibrant and muscular animated character that saves sea creatures that are unnaturally threatened and our oceans from the harmful effects of pollution such as, plastic, chemicals, oil spills, toxic, nuclear, urban and industrial waste caused by humans.  His superpowers allow him to transform into JackCopter and other forms.  Jack has other superpowers that will be revealed throughout his adventures.

 

Jack believes that education may help create and raise awareness in the minds of children to find ways to protect and preserve our oceans environment that all living creatures share and depend on one another for survival.  Sustainability and preservation are vital for future generations.

Why was “Jack the Super Prawn” created?

 

I, Antoine Jaja, the Creator and Author of “Jack the Super Prawn,” children's educational entertainment multimedia, am a snorkeler and recreational scuba diver.  I’ve seen first-hand underwater just how polluted the ocean is with plastic and other types of pollution, and the impact it has on the environment and sea creatures.

 

Many years ago, I was on a snorkelling and scuba diving adventure in the South Pacific.  From a boat, I jumped off into the reef, and below me, the first creature I saw, was a large prawn in crystal clear water.  Shortly after, I looked ahead and saw plastic bags floating around everywhere, it was a horrible sight.  I turned my head around to the right and saw a green sea turtle caught in a plastic fishing line wrapped around its body.  My natural instinct, quickly allowed me to get closer to the turtle to try to remove the fishing line from its body, but it escaped.  The experience was so disturbing and emotionally overwhelming, that I was compelled to act promptly to prevent this problem from recurring that humans have caused.  As a result of that experience, the concept of “Jack the Super Prawn” was created to raise awareness on the impact of plastic and other types of pollution in our oceans environment and to ensure that this does not happen again.
