Our mission is to protect the habitat of Puget Sound tidelands from the underregulated expansion of new and intensive shellfish aquaculture methods. These methods were never anticipated when the Shoreline Management Act was passed. They are transforming the natural tideland ecosystems in Puget Sound and are resulting in a fractured shoreline habitat. In South Puget Sound much of this has been done with few if any meaningful shoreline permits and with limited public input. It is exactly what the Shoreline Management Act was intended to prevent.

Get involved and contact your elected officials to let them you do not support aquaculture's industrial transformation of Puget Sound's tidelands.

Nisqually Tribe Elder Billy Frank Passes Away

Billy Frank Jr with Interior Secretary Sally Jewell

Billy Frank Jr., Nisqually Tribe elder and one of the strongest advocates for the preservation of Washington's greatest natural resource, Puget Sound, has passed away at the age of 83. It can be said with conviction that few in Washington did more to bring awareness to the critical importance of Puget Sound for everyone - whether tribal or otherwise - than he did. His energy and focus on the belief that Puget Sound's waters and tidelands provide a habitat producing a diversity of life found nowhere else will be deeply missed and difficult to replace.
