Salmon are a 'keystone species' because their abundance is key to the overall health of ecosystems. Their disapearance would cause cascading losses throughout the marine food chain. One example is the Southern Resident Killer Whales which feed almost exclusively on salmon - primarily Chinook. A few years ago the Pacific Salmon Foundation launched a whale watching and eco-tourism program to engage companies that benefit from the health of our coastal wildlife in supporting salmon. Orca Spirit Adventures began collaborating with the Pacific Salmon Foundation (PSF) in 2015 to proactively protect our coastal marine habitat. Since then, all 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.
