The Campaign for a Clean Indian River Lagoon ORCA has created a Campaign for a Clean Indian River Lagoon. The plan includes simple steps; first we will create a pollution gradient map of the entire 156 miles of the Indian River Lagoon. Then we will install 50 ORCA Kilroy™ water monitoring devices in the lagoon. With these two steps, sources of pollution can be identified and then be corrected or eliminated and nature can be restored. To learn more about ORCA’s Campaign for a Clean Indian River Lagoon.

The Technology Behind Those Amazing Giant Squid Images The first footage of the Giant Squid (Architeuthis dux) in its natural habitat was filmed by ORCA's deep sea camera, Medusa! Dr. Edie Widder was one of the three Scientists involved in the Discovery Channel expedition that captured the Giant Squid on film in its natural habitat for the first time in history. The electronic jellyfish (e-jelly) that she and ORCA engineers developed, attracted the Giant Squid and made it possible to get this special video footage. This e-jelly imitates certain bioluminescent displays, like that of deep-sea jellyfish. More on this story: CBS Evening News | CBS This Morning | CNN
Giant Squid Captured On Video In Its Natural Habitat For First Time Discovery Channel and NHK have joined forces to undertake the most ambitious search ever mounted to find the greatest mystery of the deep, the giant squid. With razor-toothed suckers and eyes the size of dinner plates, tales of the creature have been around since ancient times. The Norse legend of the sea monster the Kraken and the Scylla from Greek mythology might have derived from the giant squid. This massive predator has always been shrouded in secrecy, and every attempt to capture a live giant squid on camera in its natural habitat, considered by many to be the Holy Grail of natural history filmmaking, has failed. Until now. Mankind finally confronts the creature of the deep as the first ever footage of the giant squid where it lives is revealed in Discovery Channel's MONSTER SQUID: THE GIANT IS REAL which premieres on January 27, 2013 at 8 PM ET/PT as the season finale of CURIOSITY.
