Interested in learning what you can do to help protect the endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales (SRKW)? Are you also interested in winning 2019 season tickets to the Seattle Seahawks?! Make sure to stop by the Be Whale Wise booth in the West Hall #58 for your chance to win Seahawks season tickets and learn about SRKW!
The Be Whale Wise initiative was started in 1993 to raise awareness of the effects of boating on SRKW. Did you know that a SRKW uses echolocation to find their food? But when a boat’s engine creates noise in the water it can disrupt the frequencies, as well as their communication between other whales. That is why federal regulations require vessels to stay at least 200 yards away from the SRKW (that’s two whole football fields!).
However, you could be less than a football field away from the Seahawks for the whole 2019 season! All you have to do is visit the Be Whale Wise booth and pledge to Be Whale Wise for your chance at the Enter To Win!
Learn more about boating’s effects on SRKW and how you can win season tickets to the Seahawks by visiting Be Whale Wise at Booth #58 in the West Hall!
