Oil Tanker Traffic in the Salish Sea: Threats of Spills and Noise Pollution
Ensuring safe shipping through Washingtons waterways is critical to maintaining our regions economy, culture and environment. With multiple projects proposed that will expand coal and oil exports from ports in British Columbia and Washington, oil spill risks are escalating rapidly.  Evidence shows that ocean noise caused by people is doubling every decade, and the effects of this increased noise on sea creatures are not well understood.

Hear about the ongoing work to protect the Salish Sea in the face of increased oil tanker traffic.

Learn what scientists are discovering about ocean noise and its impact on marine wildlife.

Ask questions to discover how prepared Washington and BC are to respond to an oil spill.
