Help Protect Orcas

Orcas are majestic animals. They’re highly intelligent and devoted to their families. They hunt together and share food. They capture our imaginations. And they are in trouble.

Human-caused environmental changes have left the Southern Resident orcas of the Northwest fighting for survival. One of the biggest threats that they face is the scarcity of the endangered salmon that make up 80 percent of their diet. The construction of hundreds of dams along salmon migration routes has left salmon populations in free-fall. That, coupled with the pollution and contamination of the food chain, has left orcas sick and struggling to find food.

Tell Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross that you support strong protections for Southern Resident orcas and the salmon that they depend on.
