Advocacy Day for a Free Flowing Snake River

February 4 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm PST

Two more Southern Resident Orcas are starving and may not make it through the year.

Join residents from across our region to request our leaders step up as a needed support network for our starving southern resident orcas and in support of lasting Snake River restoration.

Meet at St. John’s Episcopal Church at 9am on February 4th.

114 20th Ave SE, Olympia, WA 98501

When you RSVP let us know if you need housing the night before.

Bold action is needed for Orca recovery.

The losses of both J-17 (Princess Angeline), a mother of two, named after the daughter of Chief Seattle, and K-25 (Scoter) will be irreversible. Southern Resident Orca populations near extinction.

We need to recruit our Washington State Leaders to step up for bold action for Southern Resident Orca recovery.

RSVP to join us on Monday the 4th of February to ask our leaders to stand up for bold action:

We will be joined on this day by famous Tribal leader Paulette Jordan of Idaho, members of the frontline Tribal communities and Willie Frank Jr., son of the late Billy Frank Jr., Nisqually Tribal Leader.
