The world watched Southern Resident killer whale Tahlequah (J35) carry her dead calf (her child) for over two weeks.
This is what extinction could look like and we cannot avert our eyes.
We have been working with partners to compel emergency action and, given the dire situation, Raincoast and @davidsuzukifdn are asking that the Canadian government go further to:
1. Close all marine and recreational and marine commercial Chinook fisheries, and
2. Suspend all commercial and recreational whale watching that targets the Southern Residents,
3. Enforce these measures.
