Orca Foundation volunteer program
ORCA Foundation combines conservation, education, research, community development, and tourism into its comprehensive volunteer program.
It’s all hands-on! All activities depend on season, weather, and need, and as such may be subject to change throughout the year. As a result all placements are different, and you may or may not be involved with all of the mentioned activities.
Volunteers can also expect to contribute to Ocean Blue Adventures’ commercial operations.
Our program comprises 3 key elements:
- Conservation: Rescue of marine birds, assist with beach strandings, stabilization of turtles prior to them being moved onto specialized facilities, alien tree removal, beach clean-ups
- Education: Partaking in pre-school and primary school environmental education programs, educational entertainment through the media of dance and theatre, partnering with a local under-privileged preschool to teach English and assist where needed
- Research: Taking and processing fin profile photos of a number of whale and dolphin species seen on boat trips, analysing river health, bird ringing, elasmobranch surveys. contributing to a number of online databases mapping species distribution
