Orca Month talk and screening of "The Unknown Sea: A Voyage on the Salish"

  • Environmental Science Center 2220 Southwest Seahurst Park Road Burien, WA, 98166 United States (map)

In celebration of Orca Month, join us for a conversation on the health of our resident orca population, the many threats they face, and their deep connection to our iconic inland waterway with a screening of The Unknown Sea: A Voyage on the Salish. 

View this film at Seahurst Park, the site of the largest shoreline restoration (or de-armoring) project in Puget Sound. 

Produced by Deep Green Wilderness, this film explores the natural and cultural history of the newly named Salish Sea by taking us aboard the Orion for a voyage to the heart of the Pacific Northwest’s newly named inland waterway - interviewing people deeply connected with the Salish Sea all along the way. 

Our very own, Dr. Lesanna Lahner, will provide an update on SR3's health assessment work on the SRKW population and efforts to build a dedicated marine wildlife hospital and teaching facility in Washington.

Tickets are free and can be obtained HERE
