Dedicated to raising awareness about free-ranging and captive killer whales found around the world.
In Memoriam: Sam Lipman (1990-2-22) - Orca Aware Founder and Project Manager In November 2022 the world lost a wonderful person who had a real passion and love of marine life, especially orca. Sam Lipman, founder of Orca Aware, had so much to offer the world and had worked tirelessly to protect the seas and its wildlife and to educate so many of us about the wonders of the marine world and the threats to it.
Orca Aware continues as a tribute to the wonderful, incredible force of Nature that was Sam. Life will never be quite the same without her though and for those of us who knew her well, she will live on in our hearts and memories. Rest in peace Sam. We can't believe we've lost you.
