London to Brighton Bike Ride

Ride with Team Orca as we take on the fabulous London to Brighton route.

A stunning and iconic cycle challenge that is suitable for all cyclists - no competitive experience needed.  We look forward to a fun day starting at the Capital and ending up on the famous Brighton sea front.


Gamers for Orcas

Our 24-hour sponsored gaming marathon and livestream took place earlier this year but you can hold a gaming fundraiser at a date to suit you and your fellow gamers.
Play the games you love for 12 or even 24-hours and be sponsored to help orcas all over the world.

Contact us for materials, tips and ideas.

2019 Big Splash Swim

No matter how far or fast you can swim, help Team Orca make an enormous splash for whales and dolphins by taking on an Individual Dolphin or Individual Whale challenge - or get your entire 'pod' involved in one of our Pod Challenges!

Choose one of our distances or find your own from our facts about whales and dolphins.


Urban Beach Clean

Up to 95% of the plastic in the oceans comes from towns and cities so you don't have to live near a beach to make a difference.

Organise an Urban Beach Clean (UBC) with friends, family or neighbours in your local village, town or city.

Why not combine your UBC with a street collection in aid of WDC? Perfect for students and community groups.

Plastic-free Picnic

A social and delicious fundraising event to help prevent plastic getting into our oceans.

Invite friends, family or colleagues on a Plastic-free Picnic; enjoy the outdoors and getting together while raising some vital funds to create healthy seas where plastic is #notwhalefood.

You can organise your picnic any time, anywhere!


If you aren't able to take on a challenge yourself, why not support one of our Team Orca fundraisers by cheering them on?
