Michael Reppy has over 25 years with Earth Island Institute and is presently with sub-project the International Marine Mammal Project. Michael’s focus has been using ocean sailing and racing to support Earth Island campaigns beginning with Dolphin Safe Tuna in early 1990s and then Save Japan Dolphins to stop the capturing and mass slaughter of Dolphins at “The Cove” in Taiji, Japan. Michael has worked for many years with Orca Lab of British Columbia on the Free Corky campaign pressuring SeaWorld to retire the orca, longest in captivity, to a seaside sanctuary in her home waters of British Columbia. Michael also supports the survival of the highly endangered Southern Resident Orcas of the Puget Sound area through his participation in the campaign to restore seriously depleted salmon populations which the orcas rely on for their survival. The Heirs, particularly Heir Abirami Subramanian who focuses on cetaceans in her work, are so very grateful to Michael for his care of future generations and their learning.
