About this event
On June 6th, join Georgia Strait Alliance to discuss the 2021 Canadian protection measures for endangered Southern Resident orcas.
Learn all about the orca population and the threats they face. We will also share important information about the new measures and tips for how you can minimize your impact on orcas while on the water. An open discussion will also be held, to make sure you have everything you need to join in the protection of the Southern Residents.
This webinar is part Orca Action Month 2021, an annual event that celebrates those who are helping to create positive change for the 75 remaining Southern Resident orcas and champions actions that can help protect the endangered population and their habitat.
We acknowledge this event takes place on the unceeded, ancestral, traditional territories of the Coast Salish Peoples.
As we discuss the protection and on-going survival of the Southern Resident orcas, we recognize that Coast Salish Peoples are the original and primary caretakers of the Salish Sea, with deep, ancestral ties to this place. They have lived in good relation with the Southern Residents and other species in the Salish Sea since time immemorial. We invite participants to reflect with us on the ongoing processes of colonization as it intersects with environmental protection on Coast Salish Territory.
Since 1990, Georgia Strait Alliance has been an effective voice for communities who care about the Salish Sea and its inhabitants. Our mission is to protect and restore the marine environment and promote the sustainability of Georgia Strait, its adjoining waters, and communities.
