Our Shared Future

Orcas have shown us that we must protect our oceans: for them, for other marine creatures, and for us. Our worlds are intertwined. Explore ways you can make a difference—from learning about whales in captivity to supporting ocean cleanup efforts. Humans are the world’s sole source of pollution, and it is our responsibility to mitigate contamination and protect ocean ecosystems so that wild orcas—like the six new calves born to the Southern Resident population since 2019—can thrive.
