About Our Logo
The Haida people believed that the orca protected those who travel away from home, and led them back when the time comes. We hope to do the same for our guests and students.
Orcas and the Pacific Northwest are culturally intertwined. They live like wolves and raise each child with care. Orcas will often stay their whole life with the same maternal based pod. They also travel in large groups, working together to protect all members of their pod. They are now critically endangered due to human causes such as chemical pollution, noise pollution, overfishing of their primary food source and more.
We hope that you will help protect our orca community
Here are 5 ways you can help :
- Orcas are sensitive to noise and disturbance from boats. Instead of approaching them in your own vessel, spend a day watching them from a responsibly-managed whale watching vessel, or watch them from shore.
- Engage in citizen science by alerting researchers when you spot orcas so scientists can track their travel.
- Get involved in efforts to protect and restore salmon habitat in your community. Chinook salmon are especially important to killer whale populations in the Salish Sea.
- Choose to eat sustainably-harvested salmon and other seafood to help protect wild fish populations.
- Do your part to dispose of unused medicine and chemicals properly. Never dump them into household toilets and sinks or outside where they can get into ditches or storm drains. See if your community has a household hazardous waste collection facility that will take your old or unused chemicals.
