Protect What You Love

During Valentine’s week Friends of the San Juans will explore the plight of the Southern Resident orcas and engage the community in actions that can help their recovery.

Find out what the Southern Resident orcas need to survive and thrive including how the Snake, Frasier, Columbia, Skagit and other river systems impact the orca; how San Juan County shorelines contribute to orca health; how many Chinook salmon are needed to support the population; if there should be limits on Southern Resident orca whale watching; and proposed state legislation.
