Statement by Partnership's director on the cross-border Health of the Salish Sea Report

“The Health of the Salish Sea Report released today by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Environment Canada reflects similar themes as the Puget Sound Partnership’s State of the Sound report: We are seeing improvements, but there is still a long way to go,” said Marc Daily, interim executive director of the Puget Sound Partnership.
 
“Salmon and orcas do not live by the same jurisdictional boundaries we do.  This is why international collaboration on Salish Sea issues – which includes Puget Sound – is integral to ensuring the health and prosperity of present and future generations. Individuals, governments, businesses, tribes and nonprofits from both sides of the border are working together to restore and protect Puget Sound.  As the results of this study suggest, we are making strides and we need to redouble our efforts to achieve a healthy, sustainable Puget Sound.”
