Dana’s Music Video: The Great Salish Sea

“The Great Salish Sea” is written from the perspective of the 104-year-old matriarch “Granny” of the resident orcas and depicts how the sounds of boats have changed over the last century, from Native American canoes to large sailing ships, and now to today’s giant freighters and tankers.

I hope the video will help raise awareness of the effects of large ship noise on the orcas and the dangers posed to our beautiful Salish Sea region (Washington, Oregon, British Columbia) by proposals to export huge amounts of fossil fuels through our region by rail, pipeline, and ship.
