Silversea Partners With Orca To Benefit Conservation Efforts And Enrich Guest Experience

January 17, 2018 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Luxury cruise innovator Silversea has just launched a new partnership with ORCA, one of the UK’s leading marine conservation charities.

Silversea is working with ORCA to enable guests to discover and engage with incredible marine life on their Silversea adventures 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 extensive Silversea enrichment programme by sharing their knowledge of the rich diversity of marine life on these voyages.

Through Silversea’s partnerships with Accademia Teatro alla Scala, The Peninsula Hotels and Royal Geographical Society with IBG, renowned artists, experts and guest speakers travel on select voyages enhancing the guest experience.

ORCA has championed marine conservation for over 15 years and their mission is to give everyone who cares about whales and dolphins an active role in safeguarding their future.

“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,” said Amber Wilson, Managing Director – Asia-Pacific, Silversea Cruises.

Lucy Babey, ORCA Head of Science & Conservation, said: “The entire ORCA team are incredibly excited to be working with Silversea, 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.”
