A talented group of graphic designers and passionate folks have got together with the Orca Research Trust (ORT, www.orcaresearch.org) to design a logo which is now available on keepsake t-shirts, hoodies and beanies for those wanting a special memento of Toa, the young orca who passed away in July this year.
Dr Ingrid Visser, founder of the ORT says, “I’m really grateful to the whole team who helped Toa and all proceeds from these ‘orcasome’ items will go to protect orca and their habitat, through conservation, education and scientific research.”
Dr Visser founded the ORT, in 1998 and was a core member of the team helping Toa. She was able to rapidly respond to this orca emergency and she adds “While we couldn’t return Toa to his pod, we can carry on his legacy by spreading the word through wearing this clothing. The funds generated will be used for equipment such as hydrophones, rescue and safety gear and the ongoing costs of doing field research.”
The Orca Research Trust is an officially registered NGO with the New Zealand Government’s Charities Commission.
