My backyard looks out over the beautiful salish sea, home to over 3,000 species of marine animals. unfortunately, the salish sea is becoming the poster child for underwater ship noise and tanker traffic. this industrial activity affects both the orcas and the chinook salmon they feed on. in 2017, @sea_legacy mounted a huge campaign to have the #salishsea nominated as a @unesco world heritage site. unfortunaely it never made the short list announced today. in 2018, we will double our efforts, before we lose our orcas, pacific white-sided dolphins (pictured rounding up a bait ball of herring) and the biodiversity this incredible body of water supports on our coast. #turningthetide

Via @keiko_conservation important info from @davidsuzukifdn via our friends and partners at @pnwprotectors. "this pretty much sums it up. ・・・ turn your passion for the @salishseaorcas orcas into action. watch this video, then share with others to #jointhepod. help us grow the community of support our @salishseaorcas need! ~~~" 🌊 how can you help orcas? the #southernresidentorca population in the #pacificnorthwest is endangered and on the brink of extinction due primarily to their main source of food, the #chinooksalmon, also being endangered. the main cause of this is the #snakeriverdams which prevents many of these salmon from swimming up the #snakeriver to spawn and return to sea every year. these dams could be replaced with alternatives that already exist, the use of them has dramatically decreased, and they're unnecessarily costing taxpayers millions in expensive maintenance costs. you can help by calling #senatorpattymurray (1-206-553-5545 if in the usa) and #governorinslee (1-310-902-4111 if in the usa) and ask them to #breachthesnakeriverdams! you can also, share on social media and ask your friends and family to do the same! speak up for orcas and call every day. tweet: @pattymurray @govinslee because #nofishnoblackfish! you can learn more from our friends and partners at @pnwprotectors. #orca #killerwhale #salmondinner #pnwprotectors #keikoconservation #damsense #sealegacy #pugentsound #salishsea #savethewhales #whatsyourbycatch #srkw #pnw #freethesnake #damnation #jpod #kpod #lpod

More art on this beautiful sunday. this piece from @taslishaw ~~~ 1/3 of a panoramic sunset image of kpod this summer the majority of kpod has not even made an appearance in the salish sea, their traditional summer home. it is thought that they have been forced to look for food elsewhere since their traditional summer food source of fraser river chinook salmon is do depleted #killerwhale #orca #salishsea #art #illustration #whales #sunset #nature #artgeeks #srkw #nofishnoblackfish #artivism #orcas #conservation #oceanconservation
