Orca Spirit Adventures began collaborating with the Pacific Salmon Foundation (PSF) in 2015 to proactively protect our coastal marine habitat. Since then, all our guests contribute a $2 per person a wildlife conservation fee – 100% of which Orca Spirit donates towards PSF’s programs for restoration of salmon in the Salish Sea.
Over the last three years, Orca Spirit and our guests from around the world have contributed over $59,000 towards restoring salmon in the Salish Sea.
The Pacific Salmon Foundation
The Pacific Salmon Foundation operates Salmon Conservation projects all along the BC coast. With over 150 scientists and technical staff from more than 40 federal and state agencies, First Nations, universities, industry and non-profit organizations from the United States and Canada, PSF works to rebuild the population of wild pacific salmon, promote sustainable fisheries, and create a foundation for long-term monitoring of the Salish Sea and salmon health. The Foundation also funds grassroots community-led projects, as well as larger-scale restoration and research projects such as the Salish Sea Marine Survival Project. This project is intended to increase the population of wild Coho and Chinook (a favourite food source for the Southern Resident Killer Whale community) in the Salish Sea.
