Shared waters of the Salish Sea need a shared response between B.C. and Washington
The Salish Sea is truly a wonder. On a daily basis, we see orcas, salmon, eagles and many other species travel up and down its coasts, taking advantage of the remaining healthy habitats for feeding and refuge.

Just as these species travel freely across the border, so does the water and any pollutants they may be carrying.
