Last week Governor Jay Inslee signed five bills to protect southern resident orcas. The new laws will reduce vessel noise and disturbance, improve salmon habitat, reduce contaminants, provide protection from oil spills, and educate boaters.
The Canadian Government also announced new measures to protect orcas including establishing feeding sanctuaries for and setting a distance setback of 400 yards for all vessels. A good week for the whales!
Join us to celebrate a new era in orca protection, and hear an update about orca activity in Puget Sound from whale researcher Mark Sears.
Learn what’s next for orcas, the Task Force, and the Whale Trail. Help us keep the momentum going!
