✨✨regional company @pccmarkets is pulling Pacific Northwest Chinook Salmon from their shelves - first reported by @seattlemet . .
.
this is super inspiring that companies like PCC and community leaders like @chefreneeerickson (of @thewalrusbar and @thewhalewins who also pulled local Chinook from many of her menus) are leading the way in making real change for our resident orcas and Chinook salmon. .
.
thank you for standing up for our local community and environment! let’s continue to make change! ⚡️🐋🐠🌱

#Whooshh doesn't wear fish out like #fishladders do. Key to increasing fish numbers is getting more upstream in good enough shape to spawn and return greater numbers back downriver.

This Atlantic salmon was caught swimming with the Fraser River sockeye. The condition of his organs suggests serious health issues, which if contagious threaten the wild salmon he was mingling with. A piece of him was prepared as sashimi to make the point that when you eat farm salmon you threaten wild salmon and the 100 species who need wild salmon to survive. #IsThisYourSushi.

With a heavy heart and tearful eyes I regret to inform you J50 has been declared missing and is presumably deceased. Otherwise known as Scarlet, J50 was the Southern Resident community’s miracle baby. She was born to a mother who was thought to be post-reproductive and somehow survived a difficult birth, one that resulted in the distinctive scarring on her body. She was also the first of eight viable calves to be born during the December 2014 - January 2016 baby boom and was a symbol of hope for better times. She was even nicknamed “the happiest baby orca alive” by the media for her playfulness. Unfortunately, Scarlet starved to death just a few months shy of her fourth birthday making her the 18th Southern Resident to perish over the past five years.
.
Back in July Scarlet was first reported to be very emaciated and had developed a peanut-head, something that would prove to be the first sign of her untimely demise. Scarlet’s health continued to deteriorate but she tried her hardest to cling onto life. She powered on through the waves when she fell behind her family. She resurfaced after going missing earlier on this month. She was a little fighter who beat the odds for two long months but not even the SRKW’s miracle baby could survive without an abundance of fish.
.
This can’t keep happening. These whales cannot survive without salmon. During times like these it’s easy to lose hope. To give up. It’s easy to blame the government agencies, governors, and companies (including SeaWorld) who fail to do their upmost best for these whales, and rightly so. But now more than ever it’s time to turn the tears and anger into voice and action. We need to breach the four lower snake river dams and restore Chinook salmon populations. We need to protect the future of J50’s family. Only 74 Southern Residents remain. We can’t afford to lose another. Rest in peace, Scarlet. Your fight is over, baby girl.💔
.
Help free the snake river and breach the dams. See the link below to learn how to save these endangered killer whales.

Orca Conservancy volunteer Tamara sits on the rocks at Lime Kiln State Park watching members of the K Pod swim by.
-
The west side of San Juan Island is one of the best locations to watch orcas from land. The island sits on Haro Strait which connects the Strait of Georgia to the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Salmon use these channels and tidal movements to make their way up north to the Fraser River in BC, Canada to spawn. Chinook salmon is a major food source for the Southern Resident orcas so they can often be seen hunting the salmon in these locations.
-
Because of the diversity of wildlife including protected and endangered species, this area is considered a critical habitat. This is why it is incredibly important to stop projects like the Trans Mountain Pipeline which would destroy forested habitats and increase oil tanker traffic and the possibility of oil spills in this critical habitat which could be devastating to the local wild life. -
Currently the Trans Mountain Pipeline project is halted while it undergoes Indigenous and environmental consultations to appease the courts. 📸: Joshua Woods @pnw_woods -

This Thursday, Sept 20th, consider checking out Water Under the Bridge - the Aurora Bridge Bioswale Concept Unveiling & Tour by Salmon-Safe! 4:30pm - 6:30pm, meeting at Milstead Coffee, 754 N 34th Street, Seattle.⠀

Bioswales are landscape elements designed to concentrate or remove debris and pollution out of surface runoff water. They consist of a swaled drainage course with gently sloped sides (less than 6%) and filled with vegetation, compost and/or riprap.⠀

Founded by river and native fish conservation organization Pacific Rivers, Salmon-Safe is the Portland-based environmental certification organization working to inspire the restoration of our urban and agricultural watersheds. They have become one of the nation's leading ecolabels with more than 95,000 acres of farm and urban lands certified in Oregon, Washington, California and British Columbia. Salmon-Safe Puget Sound is co-implemented with Stewardship Partners.💧💚🌎⠀

I’m very excited to be joining the @mermaidsofbc in the Wild Salmon Caravan Parade at 10am this Saturday. "This year's theme of Water People, or Mermaids, was inspired by stories from cultures around the world attempting to 'explain the explainable' and highlight the mystery of life in the oceans and waterways where wild salmon migrate thousands of kilometers. The parade will highlight the beauty and splendor of Indigenous Grandmothers in full regalia as well as the Mermaids & Mermen of BC on multiple floats and related costumes, banners, and flags."

Paddling to save the Snake River. #flotilla
Four dams on the Snake River have contributed to the extreme decline of Idaho’s wild sockeye salmon population, making them an endangered species. While the Salmon River was named for these fish, hardly any of them actually make it up there from the Pacific Ocean now, largely due to the snake river dams. The dams are not necessary sources of electricity and economically do not pay for themselves. They need to go.
Healthy salmon means a better river, ecosystem, economy, and dinner.

An acquaintance asked me why I didn’t just crosshatch the scales. The answer is because I wanted to get to know each scale as I created it.

Regrann from @orcaconservancy - Between the loss of J35's calf and now the declining health of J50, it has become clear that we must act now!
-
Here is a list of things YOU can do to help:
-
Attend the public hearings regarding the proposed action plan for J50 (Sat 9/15 7pm Friday Harbor High School in Friday Harbor, Sunday 9/16 1pm University of Washington Seattle Campus Haggett Hall Cascade Room)
-
Contact the Orca Task force directly, question what is being done to restore salmon, reduce pollution and noise pollution.
-
Contact your local representivies, even if you are not a Washington resident. You can contact other representivies in other areas as well. The more we talk about it the more they will listen. -
Vote with your dollar and buy sustainable! Especially with seafood, make sure you know how and where your food is sourced. Farm fish and non-sustainable fishing practices can be lethal to marine life. -
Reduce, re-use and recycle! Let's keep waste from entering our waterways.
-
Be mindful of the chemicals you use at home and in your yards. Often times, dangerous checmicals have a way of finding their way into the Sound or the Ocean, working their way up the food chain and polluting everything along the way. -
Get involved, sign petitions, participate in local cleanups. YOU CAN BE THE DIFFERENCE!

My heart is filled with deep sadness that in such a short span of time both little Scarlet J50 and the baby of Tahlequah J35 have passed from this world, leaving their pod grieving and the southern resident orcas at a population of 74. Three years ago the SRKWs were at a population of 84. Three years. A loss of all these precious lives in three years. Orcas are beautiful, fascinating and highly intelligent. Brain studies have revealed the limbic lobe of the brain, which is related to emotions and memory, is proportionally much larger in orcas than in humans. Experts believe they have incredibly rich emotional lives, quite possibly more so than humans. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the madness of this world, to want to turn a blind eye to the injustices around us, to seek the comfort of ignorance as a form self preservation. Have you ever lost someone you dearly love? I have, as I would imagine most of you have, as well. To truly love is the deepest gift and joy, and to grieve is a love song that is so excruciatingly painful it feels like it might kill you at times. My heart is with these great and magnificent beings in their losses, in their journey of survival, in their joy of living and exuberant play and affection for one another. May their lives model for us right relationship in the world. It is time we individually and collectively bring our best selves to the table, to rise tall and lovingly and victorious in the knowledge that we can be great... great allies, great kin. It is time we stop taking the salmon from the seas, let our starving friends eat the food they evolved to eat. It is time we all demand the lower four dams of the Snake River are breached in 2018, and healthy and abundant salmon populations will run again. These are the only things that will save these orcas. The time is now. We have the power to change this. We have the power to open the gates that separate them from their food source. Let's be loud and persistent and not give up. Let's be their voice!! We can do this!! I know we can!! Please visit @pnwprotectors @searchingforchinook @coextinctionfilm @dam_sense to learn about ways you can help.

this is hard. this is so heartbreaking. right in our own backyard. 74 southern residents left - babies and little ones dying as their older relatives watch on and suffer a bleak future caused by our own hands. some days it’s hard to be optimistic and trust that we can turn this around and do right by them. do right by our fellow beings who share and love this earth and their lives. . .
I’m still going to fight. I’m still going to try and make a difference. I’m pledging to give up commercially caught king salmon and trawled seafood. I’m pledging to continue to use only ocean friendly and natural cleaning products. I’m committed to doing more research and becoming more educated on orca conservation and salmon conservation. I don’t know if even everyone takes action it will be enough. but we have to do something. we have to fucking try.
.

Rest In Peace J50 (Scarlet). I’m so sorry we failed you.
