Governor’s task force on saving orcas meets for first time
LACEY, Wash.-- "We don't have a lot of time," Gov. Jay Inslee said Tuesday to the first meeting of his task force on saving Southern Resident killer whales. The group formed earlier this spring met for the first time on Tuesday, though it's been 13 years since the federal government first listed the animals as endangered. The task force is made up of 33 members from a wide range of backgrounds, all having a big stake in saving our resident orcas.
