| Southern Resident Killer Whales are endangered. They struggle to find enough food to eat and are vulnerable to contaminants. Noise pollution and disruption from boats interfere with their hunt for prey. The 2021 Management Measures have been put in place to reduce disturbance from boats and to protect Chinook Salmon, an important food source for Southern Resident Killer Whales.
Join Rachel Schoeler, Public Outreach Education Officer with Parks Canada, and Nadine Einarson, Program Policy Analyst with Transport Canada to learn more about the endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales and actions you can take to help protect them!
