Orca Aware is sponsored by British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR), providing information and resources about everything orca. It is an information campaign that acts as a source-pool for scientific, educational and journalistic material reporting on killer whales found both in the wild and in captivity. Orca Aware aims to assemble news and information from the many different research, conservation and welfare groups that study and educate about these apex ocean predators so you can appreciate orcas worldwide.
Orca Aware is based in the UK. Many people living in Great Britain are unaware that orcas inhabit the waters off our coast. We even have our own resident population. Having orcas off our shores show us just how close to home this amazing species really is and as apex ocean predators, orcas give us clues as to the state our oceans are in. We should care about orcas, learn about them and help address the conservation and welfare threats they face. By doing so, we will learn to better protect our oceans and planet.
