salish sea: And what's more, they have two newborns, raising hopes for the endangered species, according to Georgia Asian. The orcas are not the only creatures at risk in the Salish Sea. The famed southern resident killer whales have returned to their summer home. According to the Wilderness Committee, there are 119 species in and around the inland waters between Canada and the U.S. whose survival is threatened by factors ranging from declining food sources to pollution. On Thursday July 25 the Wilderness Committee is organizing a beach cleanup at the Tsatsu Shores near the Tsawwassen ferry causeway, from 6 30 to 8 30 p.m. Preventing litter from entering the ocean is one way to help save the orcas and other endangered species.
