The Orca Project

The Orca Project - One Tree Planted

The Problem:

The Endangered Southern Resident Orca have called the stretch of Pacific Ocean from Northern California to British Columbia home for millennia. Every year, as the Orca's migrate North to South and back again they rely on the West Coast Chinook salmon for food (nearly 80% of their diet). However, salmon stocks are diminishing due to loss of habitat and increasing pollution - ultimately impacting the Orca downstream. Planting trees along rivers and streams of the Pacific Northwest restores habitat for the endangered orca. Trees help reduce pollution and improve the health and quantity of salmon for the orca to eat!

The Impact:

Our amazing partners across the Pacific Northwest have identified critical forested areas that need to be restored in order to have the greatest possible impact on the well-being of the Southern Resident Orca. Planting trees around the rivers and streams that feed into the Orca's habitat reduces water contamination, lowers toxicity, protects salmon spawning grounds, and improves Orca food supply. These projects will bring benefits to other species of wildlife, as well as the communities in the surrounding areas.

The Solution:

Every order placed will plant one tree to help with this project until it's completion. Every customer that places an order will receive a downloadable certificate that can be printed at home via the email provided at checkout that congratulates them on planting a tree and being a part of the solution!

For every order placed, Evergreen Kings will make a $1 donation to One Tree Planted on a month by month basis.
