Conservation group says “still work to be done” to protect southern Whales
Friday, the government has announced rules to protect southern resident killer whales, so that West Coast-based conservation group said “there is still work to be done”
The wild salmon program director with the Raincoast Conservation Foundation, Misty MacDuffee said the new rules.
MacDuffee said "It’s the most comprehensive package that we’ve seen so far, and she added “They have recognized a lot of the areas that need threat reduction, and they’ve made some important strides on that road, but it’s not everything. It’s a long way from everything that these whales need to recover, but they’ve done a lot of important things.”
She added “the southern killer resident whales will travel all the way to California to feed on the Chinook salmon returning to rivers across the entire Pacific Northwest and B.C.”
