Once again, it’s election season and the Seattle Aquarium would like to encourage you to vote in the upcoming November 5 general election. There are many great candidates and important issues that will be appearing on your ballot and I firmly believe that our democracy, communities and environment are healthier when more people participate in our election process.
We have all been gripped by the heartbreaking images of our Southern resident orca Tahlequah (also known as J35) as she mourned the death of her calf this past week. At the Seattle Aquarium we are all grieving along with the rest of the world. And though we are sad, we are viewing this as a wakeup call around the health of the Salish Sea and our mission of Inspiring Conservation of Our Marine Environment.
