Our Salish Sea is under assault.  Fossil fuel projects and accelerating human activity and development are contributing to pollution, climate change and ocean acidification.  On September 15th, please join us for a powerful Salish Sea Day of Action event.  

Please join some of Orca Network's amazing volunteers on September 15th for the Salish Sea Day of Action and International Coastal Clean-up Day.

You can choose between Bayview State Park:  https://www.facebook.com/events/477183962759932/  (Bayview Edison Rd 10901, Mount Vernon, WA)  and

Fay Bainbridge Park: https://www.facebook.com/events/269613833657315/                                           (15446 Sunrise Dr NE, Bainbridge Island, Washington 98110),

Join your friends and neighbors in a day of Action for Orcas on Sept 15!                                                        Take part in the International Coastal Clean-up and learn about our Salish Sea orcas, and how YOU can take Action to make a difference in the health of the Salish Sea and its creatures.

Activities include:  * Learning about the Salish Sea, its amazing creatures and what you can do to help. * Hands-on activities for kids. * A shoreline vigil recognizing and celebrating the Salish Sea’s endangered Southern Resident Orcas. * Participate in a beach cleanup (tools and trash bags provided) and help improve the health of the aquatic environment and nearshore habitat.              * Come ready to learn and lend a hand.

Or if you are on Whidbey Island, stop by our Langley Whale Center (105 Anthes, Langley, WA) to learn about orcas and other cetaceans of the Salish Sea.

Our local communities are joining other communities around the bioregion to build broader awareness and advocacy around protection for our Sacred Sea and all living creatures.    While the sea itself may separate us physically, we are uniting to face these growing threats together.  #WeAretheWater
