This episode of Quirks & Quarks explores pressing conservation issues facing endangered species.

Dr. Sheila Thornton from Fisheries and Oceans Canada discusses Southern Resident killer whales and UBC’s Dr. Tara Martin discusses the challenge of how we prioritize investments on species recovery when resources are limited. Raincoast works with Tara’s team at UBC to help focus potential habitat restoration efforts in the Fraser River Estuary. The show also features our project partner Murray Ned, Executive Director of the Lower Fraser Fisheries Alliance.
