What is Orca?

For many years, from the end of March to September, we welcome ORCA volunteers aboard our ferries. What is their mission? These Wildlife Officers, also known as Wildlife Officers, look after the animals that inhabit the North Sea and English Channel. One of their missions on board is to observe the different marine animals, like dolphins, whales and gannets. By listing the areas where these species live, volunteers can, in collaboration with the relevant authorities, take measures to protect them.
