Public Sentiment is everything when making an impactful change in the world. The PNW Protector's Ambassadors are such an integral piece to making sure our SRKW have a fighting chance to survive this Race Against Extinction by spreading awareness across the globe.

We are all in this together. We are all PNW Protectors.

Every day we possess the capacity to protect, preserve and take care of our our world and the oceans through the choices we make and the actions we take.

PNW Protectors is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization and was launched in September of 2017 after witnessing yet another loss from our Southern Resident Orca family.  J52, Sonic was just two years old when he, like far too many in his family, died from starvation. We launched PNW Protectors as a way to reach out and help these whales before they disappear forever through empowering individuals to make a difference through every day actions. Together we can save the Southern Resident Orcas. 

You Make A Difference!
