Whales and dolphins hold a special place in our hearts, and travel to the same beautiful and remote spots as us.

ORCA is one of the UK’s leading whale and dolphin conservation charities, dedicated to the long-term protection of these beautiful animals and their habitats in the UK and European waters.

Founded in 2001, ORCA monitors vulnerable populations and works alongside various organisations and governments to create safer places for whales, and dolphins to thrive. And ultimately improving the health and well-being of our oceans.

ORCA is just as passionate about people as it is about whales and dolphins. Their volunteers come from all walks of life with a common love for marine wildlife and conservation. By making science and conservation more accessible they can engage with more people, empowering them to want to care for and protect our Blue Planet.
