ORCA OceanWatch is an exciting initiative aimed at involving as many people as possible in the collection of data on the whales, dolphins and porpoises that they encounter, whether watching from land or at sea. During a dedicated nine-day period. ORCA Marine Mammal Surveyors, Wildlife Officers, Cruise Conservationists and all Oceanwatchers including seafarers are out in force to survey as much of our seas as possible.
The event aims to raise the profile of British and European cetaceans while collecting a large amount of data over a concentrated period of time. The data will also contribute to the National Whale and Dolphin Watch in collaboration with Sea Watch Foundation.
