All Surveyor Network members will be informed by an automated email when new routes, dates or survey places become available for application throughout the season.  

Surveyors making an application should also ensure that they have completed and returned an ORCA Marine Mammal Surveyor Form, which can be found below. This needs to be submitted once a year at time of application or if details change.

ORCA Marine Mammal Surveyor Form

Please note that surveyors must have an active ORCA membership both at the time of application and on the date they are surveying for ORCA. Surveyors must also wear an ORCA branded t-shirt whilst on survey, which can be purchased via our online shop.

More details about the selection process can be found in the ORCA Marine Mammal Surveyor Guide

More details on the routes and protocols can be found on the Surveyor Network Documents page.

During the survey season there can be changes due to either cancellations by team members, the introduction of a new route, or changes to the sailing schedule resulting in additional survey places becoming available. Surveyor Network members will receive an automated email giving them a link so that they are able to apply for these available surveying spaces.

Happy surveying!
