What's wrong with this picture?

Puget Sound may look pristine on the surface, look a little closer and you'll see a different picture.

Puget Sound is a vast and beautiful estuary--one of the largest in the United States. It is also a complex
living ecosystem.

On the surface, Puget Sound looks terrific; yet underneath there are alarming signals that the ecosystem is in trouble. We must take action to prevent the irreversible decline of salmon, orcas and the landscapes that support people
and wildlife.

Discover all there is to learn about our greatest resource, Puget Sound. Understanding the issues will help us leave a legacy of a healthy Puget Sound for future generations.

Join us!


Puget Sound is home to a marvelous array of life—including hundreds of species of fish, marine mammals and sea birds, and thousands of invertebrate species such as clams, oysters and shrimp. More than four million of us make our homes here and we depend on a healthy Puget Sound in many ways. Get involved!
