Marine Mammals of the Salish Sea and climate change impacts

The Salish Sea is home to variety of marine mammals, from whales to seals to porpoises.  Some are doing well, others are still recovering.  These animals face natural and anthropogenic threats, and with climate change this gets even more complicated.  In this talk I will tell you a little about each of the species we commonly see in the Salish Sea, and how they are, or may be affected by climate change.
