Just this month, three more orca have been declared missing, presumed dead, leaving just 73 majestic creatures remaining. We at the Salt Spring Gallery feel strongly that it is important to put our art to work in support of the survival of these majestic creatures. For Ripple Effect 3, over 20 Salt Spring artists present ocean themed ceramics, paintings, glass, jewelry, prints, textiles and more, with 25% of all sales going directly to the Georgia Strait Alliance (GSA).
Now is the time to insure their Chinook Salmon food supply, reduce the noise from marine craft and protect them from pollution and harassment. This must be done before it is too late. We believe the Georgia Strait Alliance is working hard locally on their behalf and deserves our support.
