The Salish Sea. This extraordinary waterway—a system of interconnected marine ecosystems and its web of upstream links to rivers, forest, mountains and glaciers—sustains a tremendous abundance of life, from animals that make their homes below its surface to those that fly above it and walk near to (or even far from!) it on land.
The Salish Sea also sustains us: the people who live, play, work and raise families in the Pacific Northwest. And it’s up to us to make the changes, individually and collectively, that will help preserve our Salish Sea for generations to come.
With generous financial support from the James M. Lea Foundation, we’ve created a three-part video series, hosted by wildlife ecologist and conservationist Chris Morgan. Each short video tells a different story about the wonders of the Salish Sea, features a variety of experts explaining why this body of water is so important, and describes a few of the ways we can all make a difference for its health. You’ll find more ideas on our webpages devoted to the individual videos.
We hope these videos bring our community a sense of hope and joy about the amazing waterway we’re so fortunate to have in our collective backyard, and inspire you to take action to protect it. We also encourage you to share the videos widely with your friends, family and personal/professional networks.
Thank you for joining us in our work to protect our Salish Sea, one world ocean and blue planet!
