Take Action in Memory of J50!
The southern resident orca J-pod lost another member, four-year-old female J50. This is a devastating loss for the rapidly declining southern resident orca population and the third death this summer.
Despite the emergency response to feed her and provide her with medicine, these efforts were not enough. It is a heartbreaking reminder that we cannot save these whales on a case-by-case individual basis.
What J50 needed, and what her family continues to need, is healthy and abundant chinook salmon, which these orcas depend upon for survival. If we are unable to restore the salmon that these orcas need, more whales will starve to death.
Take action in memory of J50! Tell Governor Inslee to take immediate steps to save these orcas.
