On this page you will find links to fun and educational resources for all ages to enjoy! We'll continue to update the page, so keep checking back. Also be sure to stay tuned to our Facebook and Instagram accounts for daily orca updates, fun videos, photos, and resources. If you have any online resources for Southern Resident orcas or salmon you'd like to share, we'd love to learn more about them! Just send us an email via our contact page.
Orca Salmon Alliance
Did you know that there are seventeen individual groups in the Orca Salmon Alliance coalition? Our member organizations are as diverse as the Pacific Northwest ecosystem we all work to protect! Some groups focus on clean water & preventing pollution, others on salmon or on the orcas themselves.
All of our organizations help to keep each other updated and informed on the many things happening in the Salish Sea and throughout the Pacific Northwest that impact the Southern Resident orcas and the salmon they depend on —information that we then pass on to you!
By working together, we’re able to weigh in on more issues and do more to advance strong protection and recovery measures for orcas and salmon. We’re inviting you to “dip your toes” into the many topics that OSA member groups follow, learn a little more about each of our organizations and the work they do, and learn about the Southern Resident orcas and how you can help! Oh, and did we mention you can earn some great swag for playing?
Games. Science. Fun!
