immediately addressing Southern Resident orca recovery
in the Pacific Northwest.


Orca Conservancy is an all-volunteer, registered Washington State 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working on behalf of orcinus orca, the killer whale, and protecting the wild places on which it depends.

Orca Conservancy collaborates with some of the world’s top research institutions and environmental groups to address the most critical issues now facing wild orcas.

The organization’s urgent attention is on the Endangered Southern Resident killer whales of the Pacific Northwest. These three pods, J Pod, K Pod and L Pod, have been decimated by the depletion of prey resources, the accumulation of marine toxins, increased acoustic disturbance and harassment, and the destruction of salmon spawning and nearshore habitats, the nurseries of the Salish Sea.
