Students for the Salish Sea

Salish Sea Club is a student led initiative to empower students, mainly female identified people and students of color, to protect and restore the Salish Sea watershed through positive local influence on Lake Whatcom, The Nooksack River, and Bellingham Bay. We work in collaboration with Salish Sea clubs at colleges and universities near key river systems in the Salish Sea. Together, this network of initiatives participate in campaigns to heal the larger Salish Sea watershed. The Salish Sea club: - moves students closer to watershed consciousness by working to designate the Salish Sea Bioregional Marine Sanctuary. - heals our local watershed by doing our regional part for restoring healthy animal populations in our Salish Sea bio-region to more than 50% of historic levels as soon as possible. We do this with the belief that it is our future, and therefore our choice. We choose to create resilient and sustainable ecological systems in our bioregion that will protect future generations.
