During the one day, classroom based course you can learn how to accurately identify and record whale, dolphin and porpoise sightings.  Once you have attended a training course and if you are an active ORCA member you can go on to volunteer on one of our official surveys where we collect the vital data we need to monitor species abundance and distribution.  Here are two maps showing the routes we currently cover:
