Call for State Recognition of the Inherent Rights of the Southern Resident Orcas

Who Are The Southern Residents?
SROs are found off Washington State and British Columbia in the Salish Sea and on the Oregon and Northern California coasts. They are the smallest of the four resident communities within the Northeastern portion of the North America Pacific Ocean. Three pods make up the Southern Residents, J, K, and L pods. There are only 75 Southern Residents who survive today.
