Bikers 4 Orcas - raising awareness for Orcas in captivity

"Ask any biker what he/she experiences when driving his/her motorcycle and the answer is most likely "freedom". A breeze of wind on your skin, a wide world infront of you and the ability to go wherever you want. Bikers also experience this in a group, a club or a gathering. Like a pack of wolfs... or a pod of orcas.
Looking at orcas makes you realise that us bikers are not really that different. We enjoy our "freedom" and understand others enjoy this too. In a lot of countries bikers greet eachother. A social way of letting the other know we understand what the other is experiencing.

Orcas are also very social creatures. The live in a group (pod) and enjoy the freedom of the wild ocean. Orcas born in captivity probably don't know it at all. Then there are the orcas born free and captured for the amusement of people." (from their official website)

BIKERS4ORCAS is an awareness raising or shall we say “awareness racing” idea that uses the tightness of bikers and the volume of their machines to shout for Orcas.

WILD TIME’s Thomas Janak talks to Bikers 4 Orcas’ Vincent Lensen about upcoming events and much more e.g. from becoming aware of their plight to becoming their voice
