This event is the kick off for the 10th Annual Orca Month to raise awareness about the imperiled state of orcas in Puget Sound. Join us for an afternoon of fun, filled with family-friendly orca related activities, live music, a birthday cake competition featuring several local bakeries, and birthday toasts to the calves. You’ll also have the opportunity to take action for the Southern Residents and the prey they depend on, Chinook salmon.
Special guests include:
Governor Jay Inslee (invited)
Congressman Denny Heck (invited)
Seattle Port Commissioner Fred Felleman
Puget Sound Partnership Executive Director Sheida Sahandy
Mike the Inflatable Orca
With music from award-winning recording artist Dana Lyons!
With just 83 in the wild, the Northwest’s Southern Resident orca population is not only one of the most endangered species in Washington state, it’s one of the most highly endangered animals in the world.
