June is Orca Month! 2018 marks the 12th annual Orca Awareness Month, which spans Washington, Oregon and British Columbia.
Join the Orca Salmon Alliance and friends from all over the Salish Sea and beyond as we kick off Orca Month 2018! This will be a fun, free, family-friendly event from 1-5pm on Sunday June 3rd at the Golden Gardens Bathhouse in Seattle – with music, face painting, Mike the 25′ tall inflatable orca, speakers, storytellers, and fun activities for all!
More information coming soon. Stay tuned, and follow the Facebook event to keep informed.
Orca Month is a chance to celebrate one of our region’s most iconic wildlife species, but also an opportunity to reflect on the plight of these fragile creatures. Only 76 Southern Resident orcas remain, and the survival of each orca is vital for this critically endangered community’s future. We hope you’ll join us for events all month long this June thoughout Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia to learn how to protect this critically endangered community.
