Push for ‘No Go’ zone revitalized in attempt to limit stress on whales -San Juan Journal

Probably going to happen, but unlikely it’s going to have much affect. The need for more chinook is likely to be more useful. Not even NOAA could point to any science saying this is a successful strategy, but it’s a popular one among some people. Some of them are wealthy shoreline land owners on San Juan Island who want the boats out of the backyard.

In the wake of the death of J32, a pregnant female of the Southern Resident orca whales, a call to action resurfaced last week for a “No-Go” whale protection zone off the westside of San Juan Island. Orca Relief Citizens Alliance is urging the National Marine Fisheries Service to adopt its outline and begin the formal public process of establishing a no-go zone. Emily Greenberg reports.
