Emma's Actions

Education

Share my connection with Orcas through art

I will make a piece of art that connects my life to the life of Orcas and Salmon, and share it on social media.

Completed
One-Time Action

Education

Educate my family or friends

Spend 30 minutes educating my family/friends about Southern Resident Orca Whales and their endangered food supply.

Completed
One-Time Action

Community

Support Native Communities

I will use the resource links provided and spend 30 minutes learning how Washington’s Indigenous Communities are working to support Orca health, and what I can do to support them.

Completed
One-Time Action

Community

Learn About Local Environmental Justice Concerns

I will spend 15 minutes researching environmental justice concerns that effect people and the connection to downstream fish and wildlife, their causes, and local initiatives to address these concerns.

Completed
One-Time Action

Water

5-Minute Showers

I will save up to 20 gallons (75 L) of water each day by taking 5-minute showers to minimize my water footprint, as in many watersheds, a drop for me is one less for salmon, which then warms streams or impairs salmon streamflows.

COMPLETED 10
DAILY ACTIONS

Transportation

Drive Less

I will cut my car trip mileage by only taking necessary trips thus avoid sending exhaust particles and tire pollution into stormwater that impacts Orca and salmon health.

COMPLETED 20
DAILY ACTIONS

Nature

Do Nature Activities

I will engage in nature-based activities alone, or with my friends or family, for 15 minute(s) each day to connect with the shared ecosystem in which I live and rely on. (This can be anything from going on a walk or hike, to noticing the leaves changing color, to reading a book with nature themes.)

COMPLETED 6
DAILY ACTIONS

Nature

Leave No Trace

I will practice the seven principles of Leave No Trace when doing nature activities alone or with family and friends to minimize my downstream impact in my watershed.

COMPLETED 4
DAILY ACTIONS

Waste

Skip the Straw

Plastic bags and small plastic pieces like straws are most likely to get swept into our Puget Sound and/or Pacific Ocean waterways. I will keep 6 plastic straw(s) out of the landfill per day by refusing straws or using my own glass/metal straw.

COMPLETED 8
DAILY ACTIONS

Waste

Use a Reusable Water Bottle

I will keep 5 disposable plastic bottle(s) from entering the waste stream, and downstream in Puget Sound and/or the Pacific Ocean, by using a reusable water bottle.

    Hey everyone! As you're filling out you daily actions, let's think about what we've done for our local environment in months previous. If you've done something on your property this year to help keep our waterways clean, improve wildlife habitat or protect our natural resources, go ahead and share it on our Community Action page! This also helps us get an idea of the actions we are all doing to clean up our local rivers and streams, regardless of whether it's Orca Recovery Day or not. You can share your actions here: https://snohomishcd.org/action-map. Thank you
