Oceans Research and Conservation Association (ORCA) is a registered Canadian charity to protect the oceans. Most of our projects fall under our "Oceans Initiative" program. We are a team of scientists on a mission to protect marine life, including whales, dolphins, sharks, salmon & seabirds, in Canada and beyond. Like the whales we study, we are highly migratory. We spend half our time getting our feet wet in the field, wherever our work is needed, but the other half is spent using our science to inform smart decisions to conserve wildlife.
