Whale Trail Winter Gathering: Finding Light in the Dark for the Whales
Join us to celebrate the start of the holiday season with updates and short presentations about our endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales. Hear the latest about J, K and L pods, and learn what you can do to help. We'll look back at the last year, and ahead to the next year on The Whale Trail.
About The Whale Trail
The Whale Trail (www.thewhaletrail.org) is a series of sites around the region to view orcas and other marine mammals from shore. Our mission is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of whales and our marine environment. Our overarching goal is to ensure the southern resident orcas don't go extinct.
Through our current sites and signs, including two on every Washington State ferry, we reach more than 30 million people each year. The Whale Trail is currently adding new sites along the west coast, from California to British Columbia, throughout the southern resident orcas' range and beyond.
The Whale Trail is led by a core team of partners including NOAA Fisheries, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Seattle Aquarium, the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, and the Whale Museum. Our BC team is led by the the BC Cetacean Sighting Network.
Many members of the Whale Trail teams met when they worked together to return Springer, the orphaned orca, to her pod. Executive Director Donna Sandstrom was inspired by the project's collaborative success to found The Whale Trail in 2008.
The Whale Trail is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, registered in Washington State. Join us!
