In the 2018 State of European Cetaceans report, we featured research by Kimberly Nielsen, who was completing a Masters at Plymouth University, using ORCA data investigate harbour porpoise distribution and drivers. This research has now been published in a new paper!
Here at ORCA we love to see our volunteer Marine Mammal Surveyors becoming friends and keeping in touch after meeting on surveys and cruises, so were thrilled when we heard that Charlotte and Terry were getting married after meeting on an ORCA trip! Read on to find out their story.
World Oceans Day is celebrated on the 8th June each year, and this year, ORCA were excited to work with the Barclays Code Playground team to raise awareness of the conservation of whales, dolphins and porpoises.
CalMac passengers have been experiencing some great encounters with wildlife this month, from puffins to minke whales, and our luck with the weather has continued into August with only the odd day of rain and wind, very unusual for Scotland!
