The Whale Trail is adding new sites along the North American west coast, from California to British Columbia.

The Whale Trail is led by a core team of partners including NOAA Fisheries, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Seattle Aquarium, the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, the Whale Museum. Donna Sandstrom is the Founder and Executive Director. She is a member of Governor Inslee’s Task Force on SRKW Recovery, and Vessel Impacts Working Group.The Whale Trail is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, registered in Washington State. Join us!

Join us for a midwinter gathering of marine mammal friends and fans in West Seattle. Whale Trail Director Donna Sandstrom will review the current status of the endangered southern resident orcas, and ongoing efforts to protect them.

With the loss of L41, the southern resident population has been reduced to just 72 individuals.
Despite the widespread attention on J, K and L pods, why has so little progress been made?
Donna will also share the Whale Trail’s vision and priorities for 2020. Learn how you can help, and make a difference for the southern residents before it’s too late.The presentation will be followed by an informal gathering of Whale Trail friends and supporters. Everyone is welcome!

Reminder – Whale Trail Photo Contest! We’re sponsoring a social media photo contest until 2/29. Take a picture of your self or your friends at a Whale Trail site, hashtag it #mywhaletrail #location. Follow us on Instagram or Twitter, and post it there. There will be prizes! Check out our website (www.thewhaletrail.org) and social media for details.

About the Speaker

Donna Sandstrom is the Executive Director of The Whale Trail. She founded The Whale Trail in 2008 to build awareness of the southern resident orcas throughout their range. She recently served as a member of Governor Jay Inslee’s Task Force on Southern Resident Killer Whale Recovery, and the Vessel Impacts Working Group that supported it.

In 2002, Donna was a citizen organizer on the effort to return Springer, an orphaned orca, to her pod and native waters. It’s the first and so far, only, successful orca rehabilitation and reunion in history.

Prior to founding The Whale Trail, Donna had a 14-yr career at Adobe Systems, where she was a team and project manager. She attended UC Santa Cruz, where she studied psychobiology. Her first book, a middle-grade non-fiction book about Springer, will be published in Spring 2021 by Kid’s Can Press.

Benefit cider sales @ South Lincoln Park/Fauntleroy ferry line
Feb 28 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

To raise money and support Immigrant Families Together, students and parents from the Taproot School have been selling lemonade (summer) and Hot Cider (by donation) to ferry travelers and park goers since school began in September. They gather in front of the southern Lincoln Park parking lot, with mobile sellers to catch those in line. All proceeds go to Immigrant Families Together and all supplies have been donated or created by the students and families.

So far this year, the Taproot school sold lemonade for the cause, raising $1,000 from generous West Seattle/Vashon/Southworth travellers in August and $546 from Hot Cider in October. There was a smaller crew in December who raised over $100 during the holiday break. Our enthusiasm continues as we have now organized for a regular series of Hot Cider/Lemonade sales to keep this incredible organization and cause top of mind. We are hoping the warm cider and excited kids will continue to raise awareness, spirits and funds and encourage people to turn out to support the school’s efforts.
