This year’s Orca Month theme is “Stream to Sea: Celebrating the Orca/Salmon Connection.” By bringing awareness to the critical connection between watersheds, river systems, the Salish Sea, and the Pacific Ocean we’ll explore how this connection supports, and impacts, both salmon and Southern Resident orcas. Each week we’ll highlight important river systems that are critical to salmon and orca recovery and provide ways for our audience to be effective voices and advocates for them.
Orca Action Month is open to everyone and provides all of us a great opportunity to educate, learn, and connect with our local communities about the Southern Resident orcas and the threats that they face. Learning about orcas inspires and engages us to act –helping protect and recover these beautiful, intelligent creatures. Check out www.orcamonth.com, the online hub for Orca Action Month activities, events, opportunities, and information for all ages. We are on Facebook and Instagram, too.
Orca Month kick-off festival will be held virtually on Sunday June 5 from 3-5 pm. Put it on your calendar today!
