Echo Program is back!

Whale hello there!

The ECHO program is back for 2021. The decline of the endangered Southern Resident killer whale population is linked to threats such as noise and disturbance from boats, and reduced availability of their preferred prey, chinook salmon, where wild populations of chinook salmon have declined dramatically in recent years. To address this, the Canadian government continue to implement and refine their management measures to not only protect chinook salmon in the area, a vital food source for Southern Resident killer whales, but also to minimize disturbance from all vessels transiting the area.

This  will include the annual voluntary slow down of commercial vessels transiting in bound from sea, through Haro Strait and Boundary Pass on route to Vancouver Harbour
