Ecopoetics Along Shorelines


May 21, 2018

As a killer whale in the Salish Sea, Figure 5 troubles me greatly. Before 1980, my brothers and sisters in the Salish were living in abundance of Chinook salmon. Over the years, however, the availability of adult salmon has been falling quickly (5a) and I fear that soon it won’t be able to sustain our needs. We haven’t even had a notable increase in salmon consumption (5c), so it is unfair that our prey availability is dropping so quickly. I have become accustomed to a certain lifestyle, and I am not willing to sacrifice it for any other marine mammal.
