   Thank you to everyone who has supported ORCA since 1983.  Without you, our important work could not have been done.

1999 called, and said it's time for this page to say goodbye and refer you all to the Pacific Marine Mammal Center for exciting content.

They are continuing the mission of educating the public about our wonderful coasts and marine life.

Now enjoy this "classic" page from when animated GIFs were all the rage!

React calmly and sensibly to a beached or stranded marine mammal is the most effective way to insure that they receive potentially life-saving care.  Following these simple instructions can keep an animal alive and reduce its stress until qualified help can arrive.

At this time, Ventura County marine mammal care is dependent on out of County rehabilitation facilities. Sick or injured animals should be reported to the Santa Barbara Marine Mammal Center. Hotline: (805) 567-1505. Please leave a detailed message regarding the animal and its current location.

 

MARINE MAMMALS ARE PROTECTED BY FEDERAL LAW. IT IS A FELONY FOR UNAUTHORIZED PERSONS TO HANDLE OR DISTURB THEM

History:
This website was started in 1999 using Internet Design Shop by Boomerang Software.

Later, it was edited with Microsoft Front Page.

Then it was edited with a few versions of DreamWeaver.

And finally, the site was taken over by yours truly, with no HTML experience, and edited with KompoZer, a free WYSIWYG editor for Linux (and probably Windows).

This IT guy never did get around to figuring out all the boxes, nested Divs and such.  Any time I tried to mess with those, I created a mess. So, here it is, like it was 20 years ago!

We never did find a webmaster willing to redesign the page, but we did save a lot of wildlife, and educated a lot of people about our fragile ecosystem, and that's what's really important!

Thank you to everyone who has supported our work. We have passed the baton to the Pacific Marine Mammal Center.
