Silversea has launched a new partnership with ORCA, one of the UK’s leading marine conservation charities, in order to aid conservation efforts and enrich the guest experience.

The cruise line is working with the charity to enable guests to discover and engage with marine life during their journey and contribute to ORCA’s ongoing marine conservation work by helping to collect critical sightings data of whales, dolphins and porpoises.

ORCA conservationists will travel on board select voyages, complementing the cruise line’s enrichment programme by sharing their knowledge of the rich diversity of marine life on these voyages.

Erin Johnson, the cruise line’s marketing director for the UK and Ireland, said: “We strongly believe when guests travel with Silversea they become ambassadors for both the destinations and wildlife across the globe. Silversea is committed to responsible cruising and with our guests will ensure that generations to come can enjoy the wonders of our oceans.”

Lucy Babey, ORCA head of science & conservation, added: “The entire ORCA team are incredibly excited to be working with Silversea Cruises and this partnership will allow us to reach parts of the world we have never visited. This new programme will help us shine a light on some of the most diverse and beautiful marine spaces on the planet, making a significant impact in protecting the wonderful whales, dolphins and porpoises in our oceans.”
