What We Do
Puget Sound and the Salish Sea are rich with ecological diversity and represent the largest estuary in the country by volume. Salmon runs had sustained for generations but have dwindled to 10% of the fish that once returned. Shared waters are the lifeblood for urban and rural communities. However, the health of waters across the state have deteriorated and face threats daily from polluted runoff and shoreline modification to crude oil transportation/movement, derelict vessels and over development to sea level rise. Through collaboration, innovation, and long-term commitment, we are working toward a recovery that leaves a legacy for future generations across the entire state.
