ABOUT THE BOOK:
A place where freshwater streams and rivers mix with the sea, Puget Sound is a magnificent and intricate estuary. This astonishingly beautiful waterway surrounded by mountains and forests supports an abundance of resident and migrating life, notably two iconic, interdependent endangered species: Southern Resident orcas and chinook salmon.
Created in partnership with Washington Environmental Council and brought to life by a coalition of Northwest partners, We Are Puget Sound: Discovering and Recovering the Salish Sea provides inspiration as well as actions individuals and businesses can take to reverse these trends. Experience the region on this stunning visual journey through the complex web of marine and terrestrial wildlife, regional economies of fishing and agriculture, and through the lives of the people who call this place home. Essays by writer David Workman, Suquamish Tribe chairman Leonard Forsman, and WEC Puget Sound program leader Mindy Roberts, alongside striking images from Brian Walsh and more than a dozen other professional photographers bring this place to life.
