Take Action


Protect Orcas

Stand Up for Orcas

The Southern Resident orca population, which inhabits the Salish Sea, is in crisis. Orcas are threatened by lack of prey, toxic contamination, disturbance from underwater noise, and oil spills.

In honor of June being Orca Awareness Month, take action by signing on to this letter to the Orca Recovery Task Force to address salmon restoration, pollution prevention, noise reduction, and oil spill risk.

We can save our beloved orcas. But we must act fast and act decisively.

Please stand up for orcas by signing this urgent petition!
