Orca Month is hosted by the 17 member organizations of the Orca Salmon Alliance, whose primary goal is to prevent the extinction of the Southern Resident orcas by recovering the wild Chinook populations on which the whales depend for their survival.

If we lose the Southern Resident Orcas, it will be the first extinction where every individual's name was known.
