Be a hero for orcas!

Southern Resident orcas are the most well-known and beloved community of orcas in North America, and have even reached the hearts and minds of people around the world.  This special group of orcas is unique – they have their own way of living, communicating, and of course their own favorite food: Chinook salmon.

When you sign up to be an Orca Hero, you’ll join our group of dedicated Southern Resident advocates, ready to be called into action when there’s an opportunity to reach out to decision-makers.  We’ll share the latest Southern Resident updates with you, and ideas for changes you can make to help orcas, salmon, and their ocean home.  And, you just might get a special thank you gift from us for taking that extra step.

Will you join us and become an orca hero?
