2017 Ferry Surveys NOW LIVE!

15th Feb 2017

After another successful year in 2016, ORCA ferry survey dates for 2017 are now live on the Surveyors Network! 

This year we are covering more routes, more miles and (hopefully!) getting more sightings than ever before, and we are looking forward to seeing as many of our volunteer surveyors out at sea this year as possible.

We are also excited to be trialling two new routes for the very first time this year - Poole to Cherbourg and Aberdeen to Lerwick. 

As shown in our first State of European Cetaceans Report released last month, every piece of data captured is critical in preserving the future of the wonderful whales, dolphins and porpoises in the UK and Europe.

Those eligible for surveying (an ORCA member and have completed an ORCA MMS course) who haven't already should go to the Applying for Surveys section of the Surveyors Network on our website and apply by midnight on 5th March 2017.
