The vaquita porpoise is listed as being critically endangered by the IUCN, with only ten individuals remaining, however, a new genetic study has stated that the vaquita may not be "doomed to extinction".
Every year thousands of whales, dolphins and porpoises die in UK waters due to incidental capture in fishing gear. This is usually referred to as bycatch and is one of the greatest threats to cetaceans.
In April ORCA and Fred.Olsen worked together on a very special itinerary that has been almost three years in the planning. Head of Partnerships, Steve Jones, was onboard and writes about his experience on the ship.
Our Green Match Fund Campaign is now live! For the next week, any donation you give will be matched up to a total of £2500, so please help provide our people the tools they need to protect whales, dolphins and porpoises.
