Session Description

Session 1.2 – Transboundary Actions to Address Threats to Southern Resident Killer Whales (SRKW)

Southern Resident Killer Whales (SRKW, Orcinus orca) are iconic to the Salish Sea ecosystem which includes transboundary waters extending north through the Strait of Georgia in Canada, west along the shared Strait of Juan de Fuca, southward through the Puget Sound in the U.S. Currently the population of 76 SRKW is lower than it was when both Canadian and US governments listed them as endangered species. Recovery of SRKW is a priority to Canada and US, and this session presents ways to improve the level of transboundary collaboration to support SRKW recovery while acknowledging the cumulative effects of threats that SRKW face.
