For Salish Sea Sailors- 2020 management measures to protect Southern Resident killer

Quote:
The decline of the endangered Southern Resident killer whale population is linked to threats such as noise and disturbance from boats, and reduced availability of their preferred prey, chinook salmon, where wild populations of chinook salmon have declined dramatically in recent years. To address this, we are implementing management measures to protect chinook salmon, a vital food source for Southern Resident killer whales, and to minimize disturbance from vessels to support Southern Resident killer whale recovery.

Re: For Salish Sea Sailors- 2020 management measures to protect Southern Resident ki

Interesting - I have been wondering how our respective lockdowns have been affecting them.

You know, I've been reading about dolphins back in the Venice canals, etc. The whale population has to have "relaxed" (for want of a better word) since the boats are staying home - lack of noise, crowds of boaters, etc. I wonder if this has been studied by either country.

Thanks for this info.

Good to hear someone out there cares.


We are maybe the last generation to have sharks around.
