Farewell to Rachel Izzo!!

We would like to say farewell to Rachel Izzo who has been with the ORCA Foundation for the past 4 weeks…

She was one awesome person who always had a smile on her face and we wish you all the best for the future.

This is what she had to say about the ORCA Foundation:

“I decided on a whim to come to South Africa right after I graduated nursing school this December. Coming to the ORCA foundation was one of the best decisions I have ever made! I was immediately welcomed with open arms in a house with amazing people from all around the world, and my time here has created some of the best memories I’ve ever made.
The opportunities I’ve had as a volunteer have been total dreams come true. getting to do work on the Ocean Blue dolphin boats and spend multiple hours amongst dolphins was truly breathtaking, and the opportunities in and around Plett that I’ve had have been some of the most incredible moments of my life. I can’t believe a month has gone by already — I don’t want to leave, and now Plett/ORCA feels like my home away from home! But, i will be back someday!”
