Species Protection

Orcas Can’t Wait

With only 74 southern resident killer whales remaining, the extinction of this magnificent species is almost certain unless we take decisive action right now to address the threats to the health of the orca and its habitat. In January, we asked the federal government to recommend an emergency order under the Species at Risk Act, which would allow Ottawa to take swift and meaningful measures to save the Southern Resident orca. To date, the government’s response has been to “initiate processes” and take partial actions – but it’s simply not enough.

Your tax-deductible donation will support our efforts to compel the government to recommend an emergency order under the Species at Risk Act, which they are legally obligated to do. Every little bit raised makes a difference in our ability to stand up and give orcas a voice, so this important and endangered orca community has a future.
