Southern Resident killer whales need action, not delay

Hear Misty MacDuffee speak with Mark Brennae and Adam Stirling at CFAX 1070 about the threats facing Southern Resident killer whales.

Will Southern Resident killer whales survive the next one hundred years? Is the Federal government willing to finally implement the measures needed to protect and recover killer whales in the Salish Sea? How do Chinook salmon populations, shipping, fishing, whale watching, vessel noise and disturbance in the Salish Sea impact killer whales?

Mark Bennae and Adam Stirling asked these questions and more to Misty MacDuffee, Raincoast biologist and wild salmon program director. Listen to the interviews below.
