The Center for Whale Research (CWR) has employed countless staff and volunteers during the past five decades to assist in its essential work. Each of these devoted people has contributed to the CWR cause: identifying and understanding the Salish Sea orcas and advocating for the Southern Resident orcas (SRKW) in their efforts to survive. We extend our sincerest thanks to all who have invested in our mission.
