Recently, Washington State (U.S.), passed legislation (Senate Bill 5371) that establishes a mandatory 1,000-yard buffer for recreational and commercial whale watching vessels around Southern Resident killer whales. The law comes into effect in January, 2025, and will reduce the effects of vessel noise and disturbance on these whales. 

It  makes sense for Canada to equally legislate a 1,000 meter vessel buffer for recreational and commercial whale-watching vessels to match the protections provided by Washington State.
