My experience with ORCA Foundation.
Amy joined our program in May and sent us a lovely testimony:
“I came to ORCA with both a fear and fascination with the ocean. I wanted to learn more. Within my 4 weeks at ORCA I learned and experienced so much. I saw my first great white shark within my first week, and countless in the weeks following. The great white was the reason I wanted to do ocean conservation so that was incredibly exciting. I loved spending my days learning about other species of sharks while walking the beach and going out on the boat to gain a new appreciation for other species. In my time with ORCA I also saw seals, Dolphins and whales.
I also participated in activities I didn’t know about before like water surveying and bird ringing. Working with Minke and Michael was always fun. Minke brought so much enthusiasm to everything she did that you couldn’t help but also get excited.
Outside of volunteering, Plettenberg Bay has so much to offer. Whether I spent my weekend hiking or bungee jumping there was always something to do or see.
ORCA is a great program for anyone who wants to be more involved in ocean conservation!”
