Southern residents receive funding to support recovery

NOAA Fisheries West Coast announced

Southern Resident Killer Whales (#SRKW) and #WhiteAbalone receive more than a combined 1 million in funds to support their recovery through NOAA Fisheries’ Species Recovery Grants this year. These two highly endangered species are being highlighted in our #NOAASpotlightSpeciesprogram.

The funds are being provided to our state partners California Department of Fish and Wildlife and Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife to support critical recovery actions such as reducing vessel impacts to SRKW and increasing the captive breeding and outplanting program for white abalone.
