Although we are always sad to say farewell to our wonderful volunteers – we do encourage them to share with us their experiences and feelings about the programme. We think it is important to share those feelings with you so when you are deciding whether to become an ORCA Volunteer or not you can browse through some of the things others had to say about the programme.
They all had fabulous testimonies about our Program…..
“I can’t believe it’s been 2 months already.. I would like to give a big thank you to everyone at the Orca foundation! I got to experience everything I hoped for and more. I loved how diverse this project was and had great fun engaging in all the various activities the orca program offers, from ocean conservation to working in the community and with animals.
I definitely had one of the best times in my life and got to meet amazing people along the way. Hopefully I will be back some day!”
Tessa Gibson (United Kingdom)
“I have had the best time of my life with the ORCA Foundation, I wish I could have stayed longer! I have learnt so much during the project and I got to experience things I’ve never done before like seeing dolphins and helping out at a school in the township. Plettenberg Bay is a beautiful place and the people I’ve met along the way have been amazing. Thank you to everyone at the ORCA Foundation, I’ve loved every second of it!”
Rebecca Knopf (Germany)
“The best thing about volunteering for the ORCA Foundation was joining all those totally different activities and seeing so many aspects of the Plettenberg Marine Wildlife. I learned so much about environment conservation and all those beautiful animals in those three weeks. I wish I would have had the time to stay longer than that! Plett and the “ORCA-family” will always stay in my heart!”
