Support 'National Orca Protection Month'
A House Resolution has been introduced by Congressman Denny Heck (D-WA) in an effort to declare June 'National Orca Protection Month' in order to draw public attention to the orcas' plight.
Of special concern is the Southern Resident population of orcas, or killer whales, that inhabit the waters near Seattle, Puget Sound and the Washington and Oregon coasts. Fewer than 100 of these spectacular cetaceans survive today. And their future in the wild is increasingly uncertain.
Ask your representative to support H.Res. 773, in support of orca protection.
