Between the years 2005 and 2008, ORCA started to appear in the media with press releases and interviews, something we decided to avoid during the early years in order to learn the real situation of Peruvian marine mammals and the ocean issues. Since the very first times, we had very clear that we wanted to provide to the press updated information about topics as complex as dolphin captivity, oil spills effects, whaling, strandings and the first rescues that were news around a major earthquake that hit the central coast of Peru in 2007. Since then and until now, ORCA is in the latest news, making and writing history...we were born to stay!
