Orvis’s Perk Perkins Visits The Island School and CEI

June 14, 2012

This week, the CEO of Orvis, Perk Perkins, cruised through Cape Eleuthera. Perk is on a sabbatical from Orvis and is spending his time sailing throughout the Caribbean. He stopped by The Island School and Cape Eleuthera Institute to check out the work we are doing down here. He is most interested in CEI’s research on bonefish and the study of their flats habitat. We hope to stay in touch with Perk in the future so that he may help guide us as CEI becomes a hub for flats research in The Bahamas. The next stop on his tour of the Caribbean is the Exumas and CEI’s Aaron Shultz was lucky enough to accompany him on this leg of the trip. We hope Perk comes back to visit us again soon!

    Orvis and CEI/The Island School – a perfect fit! My husband and I have long been proud to be a part of Orvis through their endorsed lodge program – and are especially proud of the Perkins Family and their interest and support of important environmental work all over the world. The Perkins have been dedicated to conservation and environmental projects long before it became the fashionable thing to do. They “walk the talk” and it is no surprise Perk found his way to CEI. Like I said – a perfect fit!

    Thanks, Katie! We are excited to continue our relationship with the Perkins.
