Support healthy shorelines and healthy orcas

Our waterfronts are critical habitat for young salmon and forage fish, and this is the base of the food web that supports the southern resident orcas. HB 1579 will protect shoreline habitats by giving the Department of Fish and Wildlife the same enforcement power as our other state agencies to stop illegal activity and conduct environmental review before issuing permits for shoreline construction.

Our state legislature can help by passing a package of Orca Emergency response bills. One of those bills would protect shoreline habitat and increase Chinook salmon stocks to support the food web our orcas depend on.

Contact your legislators today and urge them to support HB 1579.

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.
