ORCA (Ocean Resource Conservation Alliance) existed from 1986-1996 as an environmental group concerned with research education and advocacy relating to ocean ecology and natural resource issues. This volunteer group consisted of about 200 members with connections to groups and individuals nationally and internationally. ORCA's main focus was countering fish farming and associated biological pollution, genetic impoverishment and other aquaculture related issues. Related areas of research and advocacy included the pollution of Howe Sound, forestry, pulp mills, driftnet fishing and offshore oil exploration. Teri Dawe was the founder and director of ORCA.
