Orca Recovery Day is an intentional day of action to build awareness about the challenges facing Puget Sound’s local orca pod, the Southern Resident Killer Whales. Our local orca population relies on the endangered Chinook salmon as their main food source to survive. Due to habitat loss, climate change, and increased pollution, it has become even more difficult for migrating salmon to make the journey home to grow their population. In order to save our orcas, we must start with our salmon.
The Puget Sound Conservation Districts work with partners across the region to restore habitat, reduce stormwater impacts, and educate the public with hands-on actions to improve water quality and living conditions for orca and the salmon they survive on.
Join us as we remove invasive species from Squaxin Park and replace them with native plants to benefit salmon, orcas, and people around the Salish Sea!
