Grant program supports orca projects

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation is taking proposals for grant funding to support orca whale conservation through its Killer Whale Research and Conservation Program.

Since its start in 2015, the program has invested about $1.9 million in orca conservation, primarily through research and restoration to help the endangered southern resident orcas that live in the Salish Sea.

The grant program supports work to increase food for the orcas — primarily chinook salmon — as well as improve habitat and fill research gaps.
