ORCA wholly rely on the generosity of our supporters and members to continue our work. However, now more than ever we need that support to continue and grow
Every piece of equipment, every event we run and every report we write is funded by an amazing network of supporters who want to contribute to our work.
There has never been a more important time for ORCA to do what we do; we live in world that is experiencing rapidly expanding threats to the marine environment and a society that is increasingly exploiting the ocean. Our wonderful whales and dolphins have never been more at risk.
All of this is in the face of a shrinking pot of money for small charities like ours, and it is a continuing struggle to make sure that we have the resources to support our network of committed volunteers.
Supporting ORCA as a member is a way everyone can do their bit to protect the ocean and help us to continue the vital work that we have built over more than fifteen years of protecting the marine environment.
ORCA receive no funding from government, so to ensure we can continue to be a key voice in shaping policy and advocating for cetaceans we have to fund our work ourselves. Your contribution will allow us to play that key role, so help us and join as a member today.
£8 a month or £96 annually allows us to spend a day at a school, teaching children about the wonders of the sea.

Not only is becoming an ORCA member a great chance to learn more about whales and dolphins and keep up to date with our work but it is also a unique opportunity to make a meaningful contribution towards the protection of the ocean.
“I have been a member of ORCA for a few years now and it has transformed my life in so many ways and given me a real sense of direction and purpose. My volunteer work as a marine mammal surveyor and a wildlife guide has allowed me great opportunities to travel and to meet some fantastic people of all ages and from all walks of life. During my time with ORCA I have also seen some fascinating wildlife from polar bears to blue whales! Why not join up as a member or even a surveyor and take an active part in helping to conserve whales, dolphins & porpoises and their habitats.”
