Location: Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia Orca Month Website

Orca Month in June is a chance to celebrate one of our region’s most iconic wildlife species, but also an opportunity to reflect on the plight of these fragile creatures.

Working together from all corners of the Salish Sea, we can restore the habitat orcas – and humans – call home. Join us for a month of educational and celebratory events to raise awareness of the threats facing our Southern Resident orca population and what we can do to protect them.

As a member of the Orca Salmon Alliance, WEC is excited to be partnering with organizations across Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia to bring you Orca Month!
