Hope for Orcas

May 17, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free Event RSVP Required

Hope for Orcas; An evening with orca researcher Ken Balcomb and an urgent call to action
Our southern resident killer whales are the iconic species of the Pacific Northwest and have been interconnected with local people for thousands of years. But their survival is now in peril. Their main source of food, Chinook salmon, has declined so much that our orcas are literally starving to death. However, we can still save the Chinook salmon and our orcas if we take decisive action now.
Join us for an evening with one of the world’s leading experts on the southern resident killer whales, Ken Balcomb. Ken will share his perspective on the incredible nature of these whales and the threat of their imminent extinction. Ken will be joined by Jim Waddell, a civil engineer with a career in policy solutions for big problems, to present solutions we can quickly put in place to save this beloved species.
