Event

Orca Steward Training
Join us for this half-day workshop to learn all about orcas; the issues that are impacting them; and what you can do to help.

Presenters include Cindy Hansen from the Whale Museum, Lynne Barre from NOAA Fisheries, Mark Sears, orca researcher, and Franziska McKay from People for Puget Sound.  

Puget Sound is home to three pods of orcas  (J, K and L pods). These beloved and iconic marine mammals were listed as Endangered in 2005. Threats contributing to their decline include lack of prey, toxin accumulations, and stress and noise from vessel impacts.  If current trends continue or worsen, they could go extinct in as little as 100 years.

Residents of the Puget Sound region have a tremendous impact on whether the orcas will make it. Join us for this pilot program to learn how you can make a difference for the whales, the Sound, and the marine life that it sustains.

The event is funded partly by a City of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Neighborhood Matching Fund award.

Attendance is limited, sign up early!
