Georgia Strait Alliance organizes, hosts, and participates in dozens of events throughout the region each year. These events are a great chance to connect with the community, letting you know more about who we are and what we do, while raising awareness about the issues we care so deeply about. Plus, we have a lot of fun at the same time! Come out for a fun day of exploration, education and adventure at Water’s Edge Day, and be inspired and motivated at the Festival of Ocean Films. And that’s just the start!

Plogging for Orcas Challenge
June 1-30, 2021
In celebration of Orca Month, join our Plogging for Orcas Challenge, a fun campaign that makes you pledge to plog (pick up litter + jog, although for this challenge you can walk, hop or roll!) during the month of June while raising funds for Georgia Strait Alliance’s efforts to keep the Salish Sea clean and support the protection and recovery of endangered Southern Resident orcas and other marine species in the Salish Sea.

Webinar: Orca Protection for Boaters
June 24 | 4:30pm PT (on Zoom)
Join GSA’s Michelle Young and Lucero González Ruiz for this free webinar on the 2021 federal protection measures for Southern Resident Orcas. We will be talking about the endangered population, the new measures that boaters need to know, tips for sharing the water with whales, and we’ll be taking questions from attendees. It will be a great conversation – we hope to see you there!
