Far and away, the greatest threat to the ocean, and thus to ourselves, is ignorance. But we can do something about that.

Wild Orca is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization registered in Washington State, dedicated to raising funds and support for organizations that provide non-captive education and services for the wellbeing of wild Orca populations. Wild Orca believes the best way to learn about marine mammals is through observation and education in their natural habitat rather than through profit motivated captive entertainment.

Core values

  • A commitment to supporting organizations that provide education to the public about marine mammals in their natural habitat.
  • A commitment to supporting organizations that oversee the welfare of wild Orca populations.
  • A commitment to educating the public about the factors affecting endangered Orca populations.

Operated entirely by a volunteer workforce with no paid members or employees, Wild Orca fulfills its mission through fundraising events, awareness campaigns and the production and distribution of educational materials.

Wild Orca was started in 2014 by two commercial seaplane pilots in Washington State. Through their work transporting people and goods throughout the coastal waters of the Pacific Northwest, they gained an appreciation and affinity for the beauty and significance of wild orcas and recognized the value and importance of caring for these unique and iconic creatures.
