"We Are Puget Sound" Book Talk & Reading
"We Are Puget Sound" is a stunning visual journey through the complex web of marine and terrestrial wildlife. It explores the regional economies of fishing and agriculture and documents the lives of the people who call this place home. Essays by writer David Workman, Suquamish Tribal chairman Leonard Forsman, and WEC Puget Sound program director Mindy Roberts, along with striking images from Brian Walsh and more than a dozen other professional photographers provide inspiration as well as a call to action to protect this unique ecosystem.

This event is part of BIMA's Momentum Festival.

ABOUT "WE ARE PUGET SOUND"
A place where freshwater streams and rivers mix with the sea, Puget Sound is a magnificent and intricate estuary. It forms the southern portion of the broader Salish Sea ecosystem, home to a Canadian province, a US state, and fifty-plus Native American Tribes and First Nations. The region is the lifeblood for urban and rural communities that rely on economic opportunities and a high quality of life defined by this rich inland sea. This astonishingly beautiful waterway surrounded by mountains and forests also supports resident and migrating marine lifenotably two iconic, interdependent endangered species: Southern Resident orcas and chinook salmon. But Puget Sounds cherished natural beauty conceals its rapidly deteriorating health after a century and a half of resource extraction, pollution, and impacts from climate change and development. Recovering Puget Sound and the broader Salish Sea, essential for the survival of all the human, plant, and animal communities that rely upon it, requires collaboration, innovation, and a long-term commitment.
