Success requires collaboration

Thank you for helping to protect endangered whales

The logistics of coordinating a voluntary ship slowdown for commercial ships and route alteration for tugboats outside of the port authority’s jurisdiction are complex and involve collaboration with many others.

The port authority and the ECHO Program team are grateful for the ongoing participation and support of our many partners who contribute to the continued success of these kinds of voluntary initiatives, including federal agencies, shipping associations, ship agents and operators, pilots and others.

We’d especially like to thank the following organizations for participating in the ECHO Program’s 2020 underwater noise reduction initiatives. Their efforts will be helping reduce underwater noise in key feeding areas for the endangered southern resident killer whales over the summer.
