Protecting Southern Resident killer whales in the Salish Sea

Reducing threats and protecting critical habitat.

Reversing, or even slowing, our unsustainable human footprint on a time scale relevant to dwindling wildlife populations is a challenge.

Raincoast’s approach to recovering Southern Resident killer whales stands on two primary tenets.

First is to hold the line: to keep critical habitat in the Salish Sea from becoming further degraded.

The second tenet is to reduce the immediate threats that impact their survival; lack of food, noise and disturbance from vessels, and pollutants that accumulate in their food.
