The next CYC Zoom meeting is Tuesday April 13th!

For our potluck presentation, Rein Attemann (WEC) and Nora Nickum (Seattle Aquarium) will give a presentation titled “Southern Resident orcas and you: Local orca pods, the risks they face, and what we can all do to help”. They will cover Southern Resident orca biology and family structure, their unique food needs, their seasonal range of habitat, and the science behind the three main threats to their survival.
We encourage members to contribute any questions they might have.
