Meet Our Team
The Salish Sea School is committed to cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity, inclusion, and connectedness. We are able to grow and learn better together with a diverse team. We welcome the unique contributions that one can bring in terms of their education, opinions, culture, ethnicity, race, sex, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, languages spoken, veteran’s status, color, religion, disability, sexual orientation and beliefs.
We are stronger together with the collective sum of individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, and talent which ultimately brings about a healthier planet.
Join us in celebrating Orca Recovery Day! Through this adult course we will provide an introductory look at orcas of the Salish Sea with a spotlight on endangered Southern Residents. This program provides an educational Orca 101 presentation and discussion aboard the ferry as we journey to Friday Harbor. There, we will enjoy a private visit to Center for Whale Research's Education and Outreach Center where we will get to to intimately know Southern Resident orcas through different mediums, as well as understand what it is to be an orca researcher. We'll also introduce ways you can advocate, and/or things you can do to help endangered Southern Resident orcas. *Please bring lunch, snacks, a water bottle, and anything else you might need!
