Speak up for the orca! “NO NEW TERMINAL!”

We have another opportunity to say NO to the proposed Port of Vancouver Roberts Bank Terminal 2 (RBT2) — less than 1 mile away from Washington State!

Let’s do this for the newest orca baby, J59!

• If approved, this behemoth container terminal would wreck the hard work we in Washington are doing to protect and recover our endangered Southern Residents.

• Container ship traffic through the Salish Sea would increase by up to 520 transits per year – increasing vessel noise, oil spill risks, and ship strikes.

• Critical habitat would be lost – for migratory birds, orca and their prey, Chinook salmon.


The fate of this terminal will be decided soon, so Canada needs to hear from us soon — before March 15, 2022.

Thank you to our friends at Friends of the San Juans for making this easy for us!


Thank you, Safe Shippers, for staying informed and engaged!

Thanks to you, for the past 10 years we have been persistently promoting safe shipping in the Salish Sea and have seen many successes.

We can be proud of the work we have done, but we can’t stop now! To learn about the 22 new or expanding terminal and refinery projects proposed, permitted or recently completed, view the November 2021 Salish Sea Vessel Traffic Projections infographic.
