Who we are

Proyecto O.R.CA. is a working group with the goal of make awareness about the need for the protection and conservation of this threatened population


Our team is made of volunteers, earning nothing by doing it, joined together by passion for this orca family.

This is the result of keeping track on the population for over a decade through social media, particulars interest in us having such compilation, and our own observations.


We believe in cooperation and that good things happen when people come together so that everyone can share and enjoy valuable information about these orcas.
