The Ocean Research & Conservation Association (ORCA) is a non-profit organization focused on exploring new ways to protect the ocean, starting right here with our very own precious ocean estuary, the Indian River Lagoon.
On February 26, 2022, ORCA will be hosting a fundraising event called ORCA’s Explorer’s Experience at Triton Submarines in Sebastian.
Guests will enjoy locally-sourced cuisine, see new state-of-the-art submersibles, glowing footage of creatures from the deep ocean, the first video ever recorded of a giant squid in US waters and talk with the explorers who experienced these marvels first-hand.
Tickets to this event are $250 per ticket and are available at https://teamorca.org/events.html.
Current event sponsors include Triton Submarines, Schmidt Marine Technology Partners, and PNC Private Bank. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Lauren at Ltracy@teamorca.org.
