ORCA has created a Campaign for a Clean Indian River Lagoon
In 2005, internationally recognized deep-sea explorer Dr. Edith Widder founded the Ocean Research & Conservation Association (ORCA), a scientific based conservation nonprofit. “Our focus is on reversing the trend of oceanic and near-shore marine ecosystem degradation using the scientific integrity of a research institute,” said Dr. Widder. ORCA’s goal is to revolutionize how scientists interact with communities and policy makers to reverse the frightening trend of water quality degradation as well as the general collapse of the aquatic ecosystems that surround us, including the Indian River Lagoon.
