Expanding Killer Whale Protection

The effects of living in a heavily industrialized,urbanized area & a massive increase in vessel traffic (as well as the live-capture business which killed/captured at least 47) has put intense pressure on KWs. With a complete picture of vessel interactions, this project will enhance their immediate well being and contribute to bringing about the systemic change necessary for their survival. The southern resident population has fluctuated since the 70's (hitting a known high of 98) but is now at 78, with the loss of 6 individuals in the last year. Their crisis is caused entirely by human activities. Only meaningful action on our part will bring about the conditions needed for them to survive.
