The American Cetacean Society is the first non-profit conservation group anywhere devoted to cetaceans - whales, dolphins and porpoises. ACS National was founded in 1967, and the OC chapter was formed ten years later.
The Orange County Chapter was formed in 1977 by Peter Bryant, Mike Hickey, Dave Beeninga, Dennis Kelly, Barbara Britten, Ganell Baker and others. We have members from all backgrounds, from scientists and educators to people who just love whales!
ACS-OC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, and 100% volunteer.
Join an elite organization that consists of marine biologists, conservationists, and citizens scientists that support the efforts of the world first cetacean conservation organization.
