Read along with Whale Scout and Whale & Dolphin Conservation for Orca Month! We’re diving into the 2022 theme “Stream to Sea” to explore how recovering rivers and watersheds is essential for the Southern Resident orcas. This year, we’re reading “Recovering a Lost River” by Steven Hawley. This book argues for the need to remove the four Lower Snake River dams to restore the Snake River’s wild salmon, and discusses how the health of the river is connected to local economies, water rights, energy independence, and Tribal cultures. “Recovering a Lost River” rallies advocates from many sides in a persistent but straightforward message: all salmon need is water in their rivers and a clear way home.Join us online June 23rd at 7pm PDT for a community discussion on Zoom of “Recovering a Lost River” and its connections to Southern Resident orcas, the hope or frustration in the ongoing struggle to restore the Snake River, and the new opportunity of the last two years. Conversations are casual, include thought-provoking questions and polls, and are open to everyone.
