The dramatic story of endangered Southern Resident killer whales reached a crescendo in 2018 when Tahlequah carried her dead calf for 17 days and over 1,000 miles. The hearts of people around the world were touched by the tragic grief displayed by a mother orca. Today, the whales continue to struggle to reproduce and continue their family lines. Whale Scout restores salmon habitat to help address a critical problem for orcas: lack of food. Improving riparian areas alongside Chinook-bearing rivers and streams, we get whale watchers directly involved in saving the whales we all love to observe in the wild. With just 73 whales remaining in this population, we’re serious about getting work done. Read more about what we are striving to accomplish in 2022 with your support and donate today.
