The Southern Resident Killer Whales (SRKW) need your voice and support! Their designated critical habitat is being revised and expanded to include the marine waters from the U.S. international border with Canada at the mouth of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, south to Point Sur, California.
Friends supports the proposed revision of the Critical Habitat Designation for SRKW with these two important additions: include the Quinault Range site and a 10-km buffer and the nearshore areas which provide critical habitats for the SRKW food web. Please join us in making a comment by December 18.
