LET’S BRING SALMON BACK TO EVERY RIVER AND CREEK IN BC

SUPPORT THE 4 MILE CREEK HATCHERY & THE SAN JUAN ENHANCEMENT SOCIETY!

The Canadian Orca Rescue Society is launching the Orca Food Drive to help save the Southern Resident Orcas. The Southern Resident Orca pods are starving to death due to lack of salmon. As a result, we are launching our Orca Food Drive to help fund the Four Mile Creek Hatchery in Port Renfrew. This hatchery has put out over 40 million salmon since it’s beginning in 1977, all of them released into the San Juan River to help build up the natural salmon population. Despite Government closures to sport salmon fishing areas and the obvious benefits which come from having millions of Chinook salmon released into the ocean, Four Mile Creek Hatchery’s contract has been cut by DFO. Their future is in peril and they are a source of salmon for the Southern Resident Orca Pods. We need more hatcheries along the coast so help us save it. Salmon benefit everyone, the orcas, the fishermen, the seals and sealions, and when they come up stream to spawn and die, they benefit the bears, seagulls and the soil in the forest. Help us create a thriving environment by keeping Chinook Salmon hatcheries along our coast.

The life-size inflatable orcas which we use in our outreach program are representative of individuals in the Southern Resident podsWe bring these to as many events as we can to promote the environment and protect orca habitat.
We make these life-size inflatable orcas by hand and welcome any assistance in their construction.

Be An Orca Rescue Ranger!

Join our group and help us give a voice to the whales. The long-term goal of this society is to bring salmon back to every river and creek in BC.

We are willing to work with anybody to improve the ecosystem on the coast. We have alliances with many groups in BC that facilitate people working to restore salmon habitat.

What you can do: Donate….Give your Time….Spread the Word

We always need people to help with the setup and participation at these events. Donations are used to support the Four Mile Creek Hatchery and the San Juan Restoration Society and we are actively investigating new hatchery technologies to determine the optimal method of regenerating the rivers and salmon stocks.
