  1. Find and discuss one action that is being taken to reverse the decline of orcas. What did you learn can be done to potentially reverse the decline of orcas? Do you think it can work? Include a link to where you found your information (~100 words). Some suggestions of things to search for:
    • The Govenor’s Southern Resident Orca Task Force
    • Local groups that are working to protect salmon, reduce noise, etc
  2.
