Education - Overview

ORCA has a commitment to providing educational opportunities and sharing our knowledge with colleges and universities as well as with high school students. Many of our programs have students working side by side with our scientists in the field to real world science.
A few examples of our educational projects have include the following programs.

  • Kilroy Academy, which teaches today’s youth the knowledge and skills they need to help save Planet Ocean.
  • COSEE, a national network of regional centers that integrates ocean science research and education in order to advance public understanding of the ocean.
  • Save the Water Babies, a project designed to give students a real world science and education experience.





"ORCA’s Kilroy is
brilliant. The whole concept of a low-cost monitoring network is critical for understanding the ocean so we can better protect it.

Studies show that protecting critical marine habitats -- such as coral reefs, seagrass beds and mangroves -- can dramatically increase fish size and quantity.
