This year, the Washington State Legislature passed a critical package of orca recovery bills that address the many threats faced by Southern Resident orcas. With only 75 animals remaining, we could not wait any longer. Together, we’re celebrating this win for orcas with the Salish Splash! Challenge your friends, family, and colleagues to jump into Puget Sound! What better way to show your support and enthusiasm for orca recovery than by jumping for joy into the water?
What to join the Salish Splash Challenge?
- RSVP here.
- Print out the Salish Splash Challenge sign and write in the name of the person you would like to challenge.
- Take a photo with the sign and post it to social media using #SalishSplash. Remember to tag the person you’re challenging! See some examples from last year: Jacques White, Will Hall, Mindy Roberts.
- Show up on June 13 to Golden Gardens Park, Seattle, or one of our partner locations, ready to splash!
Bring something to splash in, plus aqua socks or other protective footwear. We will provide all the participants who were challenged with hot beverages, food, and live music by Dana Lyons who is on his Rise for the Orcas Tour.
Partners are also organizing satellite events around the Salish Sea, so if you can’t make it to Seattle, please splash at one of our satellite locations in Tacoma, Bellingham, or San Juans (contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details).
