Clive Martin – Founding Director


Clive has a background in tourism and hospitality but changed course to satisfy his passion for wildlife and in particular

Cetaceans (whales dolphins and porpoises) as well as other ocean wildlife.

 

He became a Director of the Biscay Dolphin Research Programme, in 2000, which carried out intensive monitoring of this part of the North East Atlantic.

In association with P&O Ferries he ran a project with a team of Ocean Wildlife Officers enabling the general public, who travelled as passengers aboard these ships to actually be given the chance to observe whales and dolphins and to understand their amazing lives as well as the diversity of species. This type of programme has evolved into an exciting project on Cruise ships where Clive has established a team to give lectures as well as deck watches to highlight these animals as well as informing passengers of the pressures that Ocean wildlife endures.

 

Clive has always considered the captivity of whales and dolphins, used to supposedly entertain human beings, to be wrong and thus established Orca Rescues Foundation (ORF) to highlight and help resolve the issues surrounding such captivity.

 

He is also a founding Partner and ex Chair of Trustees of the World Cetacean Alliance (WCA) which is the first global alliance for Scientists, NGO's and Specialist Organisations dealing with a vast array of subjects concerning whales and dolphins

Rebecca Bellini – Trustee

Rebecca is an advocate and voice for captive Orca Worldwide. Growing up in Scotland and spending holidays in the Hebrides, Rebecca was surrounded by marine life. Graduating in Media studies in 2007, she combined her love of photography and diving to work as an underwater photographer and divemaster.

Rebecca lived in New Zealand focusing on whales and dolphins while she worked as Assistant Manager and onboard photographer for a dolphin trip business. This fuelled her desire to keep working within this field and in 2014 she worked for Whale & Dolphin Conservation and recently as Project Manager for WhaleFest and World Cetacean Alliance. Her work has gravitated to conservation roles where she feels her skills and experiences are best utilised.

“I want to help turn the tide on captivity through fundraising, informing and inspiring all ages to view Orca in the wild.”

Jo-Blaise Martin - Trustee

A keen wildlife photographer and an adamant believer that Orca are meant to be swimming freely in the oceans, not going insane inside concrete tanks. Jo-Blaise had a keen wildlife interest from a very early age and now enjoys travel based around new wildlife experiences with a particular interest in snorkelling and free-diving in the Maldives filming and photographing the abundance of marine wildlife. 


These experiences only enhance the passion for the freedom experienced in the ocean and will not rest until the largest of Marine mammals can swim freely again. Jo-Blaise has also run a number of Marathons to raise money for the Charity.

Kumi Kemp - IT Support

Kumi's always been fascinated with sea life, with a focus on Whales and Dolphins. 


He's been lucky enough to travel and see cetaceans in their natural environment, the only place he wants to see them is free and wild in the ocean. Kumi created this website to help Orca Rescues reach more people with their message.


He's still at secondary school and is planning to go on to study Marine Biology .
