Reduce impacts of whalewatching on orcas!

Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has just released draft rules for public comment for commercial whale watch operators that want to view southern resident orcas. The draft rules outline two proposals, yet neither one is protective enough for this highly endangered species as they still allow for viewing. More adjustments are needed to improve Option A to make a significant difference in quieting the waters and helping the orcas successfully forage, socialize and raise their babies.

Please personalize your comment letter and urge WDFW to amend Option A with more protective measures for the orca that better reflects best available science and the precautionary principle approach.

Thank you for taking action to protect orcas!

Hello, my name is _____ and I live in ______. 

I am calling to urge Senator Patty Murray to lead the fight against Trump’s disastrous environmental budget in the Senate Appropriations Committee.

The budget bill cuts funding that Washington State needs to clean up thousands of toxic sites, protect our beautiful environment, and ensure that our air and water are clean and safe for our families.

Senator Murray has been a reliable champion for the environment, and we need her leadership now more than ever to keep our communities safe and healthy.
