presented by Michael Fishbach
 
When Michael Fischbach and his family saw Valentina, they first thought she was dead. But when they got closer, they realised the great whale was still breathing. The fins and tail of Valentina were wrapped in fishing lines which dragged her down. The only way to save her, was to cut her free of the fishing net. Michael and his family succeeded and Valentina was very grateful. The event changed Michael's life. To make sure the great whales will survive all the threats they face today, he founded The Great Whale Conservancy (GWC) to speak and work on behalf of these magnificent animals.
 
 
Protecting the World’s Great Whales and their Habitat
 
 
 
 
 
For the past 23 years Michael has been actively involved in field research and conservation work on Blue and other Great Whales. He is about to spend his 20th season of fieldwork on the large whales of the Sea of Cortez this winter. Michael’s passion is connecting the scientific and conservation communities and forging actions that minimize human impacts which are detrimental to the world’s Great Whales. His efforts for the GWC revolve around live educational presentations, bringing issues like the “Whale Pump” and Ship Strikes into the public domain, funding, and helping the public to gain more awareness of Great Whales and their current plight. Michael regularly attends the GWC’s Mz Blue – Whale inflations, attends conferences, speaks with the media and friends of GWC. Michael was formerly one of the top 50 tennis players in the world and spent 10 years competing on the Men’s Professional ATP Tennis Tour, all over the world.
