OUR SOUTHERN RESIDENT KILLER WHALES
Saturday, April 13 2PM
Orcas have populated the Pacific Northwest waters for eons and now they’re in trouble.
You may have read articles about the crisis facing the Southern Resident Killer Whales. They depend on chinook salmon for their food supply, and those fish are on the decline. Noise from marine traffic is disrupting the whales’ hunting abilities. And as the top predator in the ocean, they are more affected by pollutants than other sea creatures.
Join our panelists, and learn what efforts are being made to save these magnificent creatures for future generations.
