HELPING ORCA STAY FREE AND SAFE
Also known as killer whales, orca not only “eat sharks for breakfast”, as quoted by Dr Ingrid Visser, but they are also incredibly intelligent, sensitive, and empathetic creatures.
They are also ‘keystone’ and ‘indicator’ species, meaning they are vital to our ecosystems, and can help us understand the ocean’s health
To help these incredible species, 10% of our Orca EUGY sales from online, New Zealand, Australia and the United States sales, is donated to the Orca Research Trust.
This non-profit organisation is run by world-renown orca expert, Dr Ingrid Visser
To celebrate World Orca Day, we launched a special promotion to help spread awareness and love for these creatures, for a little over a month.
10% of the ‘Killer’ deal’s proceeds were donated to the Orca Research Trust, in addition to our current ongoing donations
It’s important orca stay in the wild!
Orca are social creatures that can travel as far as 150km a day and dive as deep as 1,000m!
That’s why we’re glad Dr Visser made a suggestion to update our orca pack’s image to represent them in their natural habitat. Taking on her advice, we made the changes immediately - some manual labour was involved!
WORKING CLOSELY TOGETHER
Both based in Northland, New Zealand, we are very fortunate to be able to work closely with Dr Visser - sometimes even assisting with orca field research in the Whangarei harbour!
