As part of an offical partnership, Fred. Olsen are proud to be working with marine wildlife charity ORCA, who are dedicated to working to help protect the world's population of dolphins and whales. As well as many other conservation projects they have set up and are operating, ORCA will be sending teams of volunteers on a selection of future Fred. Olsen sailings, to observe wildlife behaviours, collect vital sighting data and much more. To find out more about ORCA and everything they do, and to learn about the wonderful whales and dolphins they help to protect, their YouTube channel is a great place to start.
