Against the Current – Talk – Let the Herring Live w/Eric Pelkey and Vanessa Minke-Martin

Tuesday, February 18, 2020 - 5:30pm

Join us during the Against the Current: Orca + Salmon exhibit and in partnership with Pacific Wild to welcome Hereditary Chief of Tsawout Erick Pelkey and Marine Science Specialist Vanessa Minke-Martin to present Let the Herring Live.
They will discuss the restoration of the Salish Sea’s distinct herring populations in order to bring vitality back to communities for whom herring was a foundational species. This includes the effect this has on our Southern Resident Orca population who feed on Chinook Salmon who in turn feed on the herring.
Exhibit runs from Feb. 14 – 23 from 10-5pm each day.
