Orca Recovery Day 2022
October 15, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Orcas in Puget Sound: The Southern Resident Orca Whales that call Puget Sound home are critically endangered. Over the past couple of years, many local orcas have died from a combination of malnutrition, polluted waters, and stress from local boat traffic.
With just over 70 individuals left in the local population, we must act now. Puget Sound has 7,500 miles of shoreline, 2,500 of which has been degraded by development. By working to improve salmon habitat, we can help their populations grow and provide a food source and clean waters to save the most iconic species of the Pacific Northwest. As we restore our shorelines, there will be more forage fish such as sand lance and smelt, giving the salmon more food and therefore more food for the orcas.
