PROTECTING PACIFIC NORTHWEST WHALES

Our Mission
Our mission is to protect Pacific Northwest whales through land-based conservation experiences. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit based in Bothell, Washington with Whale Scouts based all over Puget Sound and the Salish Sea. Powered by volunteers, Whale Scout connects the public with trained naturalists to watch whales for free from shore, and to inspire whale watchers to participate in habitat restoration events.

Orcas Need Free Flowing Rivers 6/28

The fate of Washington’s iconic orcas is linked to abundant salmon runs and free-flowing rivers. Join us for an inspiring evening of learning and taking action! Patagonia Ballard is hosting Orcas Need Free-Flowing Rivers, an in-store event with Whale Scout and Defenders of Wildlife that will discuss how restoring rivers can save orcas from extinction. We’ll be joined by Florian Graner of Sealife Productions showing his film, Return of the King, as well as enjoying an engaging presentation by independent scientist, Monika Wieland-Shields of Orca Behavior Institute.
