  • International Marine Mammal Project
    For more than 30 years, the International Marine Mammal Project has led the fight to protect dolphins, whales, and the ocean environment. We pioneered the "Dolphin Safe" tuna fishing standard, stopping the intentional chasing and netting of dolphins and preventing hundreds of thousands of dolphin deaths every year. We directed the historic rescue and release of the orca whale Keiko, made famous in the movie Free Willy. We are fighting to end the tragic slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan, as featured in the Academy Award–winning movie The Cove. And we're campaigning to stop all trade in live dolphins and end the captivity of whales and dolphins for circus performances. Berkeley, California

  • OrcaLab
    In 1970, Dr. Paul Spong founded OrcaLab, a small land based whale research station nestled against the evergreen forest of Hanson Island in the waters of the "Inside Passage" of northern Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. The work of OrcaLab is based on the philosophy that it is possible to study the wild without interfering with lives or habitat. A network of hydrophones, positioned around the orcas' "core habitat" helps us monitor their movements all year round. Supplementing the acoustic data are visual sightings of orcas as they pass OrcaLab, and reports from land observation sites during the summer "season" as well as reports from other researchers and whale watchers who share observations and information. Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
