Action: Support Our Orcas

Our Salish Sea is under assault.  Fossil fuel projects and accelerating human activity and development are contributing to pollution, climate change and ocean acidification.  On September 15th, please join us for a powerful Salish Sea Day of Action event when we deliver our petition to the Govenor.

The Salish Sea urgently needs our protection! Throughout the bio-region our sacred water faces a cumulative toxic load from multiple fossil fuel projects and pollution. As acid oceans impact declining shellfish and salmon populations, Orcas are starving.

Our local community is joining other communities around the bioregion to build broader awareness and advocacy around protection for our Sacred Sea and all living creatures.    While the sea itself may separate us physically, we are uniting to face these growing threats together.  #WeAretheWater

The Pacific Northwest’s Southern Resident killer whales are dying. And it’s our fault. Read the story here.
