ORCA in Schools

Whale Education Month

Whale Education Month

Every October, schools across the country celebrate our wonderful whales, dolphins and porpoises by taking part in Whale Education Month.
Take your class to sea

Take your class to sea

ORCA offers schools, colleges and universities the chance to give students of all ages an unforgettable experience that will enrich their learning immeasurably.

Operating on ferries out of both Newcastle and Portsmouth, these trips combine ORCA’s background in citizen science with their experience of inspiring young people, showing them first hand conservation projects.

ORCA’s Whale Education Month

In October each year, hundreds of schools and thousands of students take part in ORCA’s Whale Education Month month. This is an annual event with different topics each year. Although we encourage schools to deliver the materials in October, teachers can use the materials all year to inspire students about wonderful whales and dolphins.

New for 2018 - Marine Litter

As part of our Fin-tastic Fun in Schools ORCA has produced a new series for 2018 on Marine Litter. This fun and interactive pack will help children understand this issue.

Make a Small Change

ORCA's Make a Small Change campaign is your chance to make a difference. See how making just small changes to your behaviour can have a wider impact on the marine environment.
