I want to thank you for reading the inaugural issue of Making Waves, the Puget Sound Partnership’s new online magazine. Our goal is to shine a spotlight on the people and work that is bringing us closer to a healthy and vibrant Puget Sound. With a full understanding of the enormity of the task, we fervently hope these stories will encourage, inform, and inspire you in the work you do every day to recover and protect Puget Sound.
The stories we have chosen cover a range of ways we are making progress, from bringing the science community together to create a restoration plan for kelp beds, to highlighting how humans and critters are benefiting from completed projects such as the Bowman Bay restoration, and showing how our sense of place motivates us to action in protecting and restoring Puget Sound. We are also highlighting the Puget Sound Restoration and Acquisition fund (PSAR), which for 13 years has been funding projects large and small that protect salmon, create jobs, and provide recreation. Finally, we are pleased to promote and support Orca Recovery Day, a grassroots effort inspiring thousands of volunteers in actions that directly benefit the Southern Resident Orcas.
Making Waves is both an online magazine as well as a way to strengthen our community. It’s an opportunity for us at the Partnership to get to know you a little better. We invite your participation by letting us know what success looks like in your part of the Sound. You’ll find my email address below, and I look forward to hearing from you and helping you tell your story of success in the protection and recovery of Puget Sound.
