'This initiative, as well as the others under our Crystal Cares program, ensure that we are continuing our focus of caring for our world in meaningful ways,' Crystal President and CEO Tom Wolber said.

This will include carrying wildlife experts aboard select Alaska cruises for training, research and data collection as part of ORCA's OceanWatch program.
