“We have many opportunities to view thousands of species of wildlife in our local waters whether we are paddling, diving or walking along the shorelines. Unfortunately, many species are at risk in our area, and none more so that the endangered southern resident killer whales. Spend an evening with Georgia Strait Alliance’s Species Protection Coordinator learning about the history of this iconic population of whales, the threats that are facing them and how we can work together to change the course of their future so that generations to come can experience the wonder and beauty of this unique community of Orcas.”
