“Where in the world is the Salish Sea?”
A recent study showed that only 5 -14% of all people in the Pacific Northwest can identify the location of the Salish Sea. That’s according to the SeaDoc society and UCDavis, and it’s something that the Salish Sea Institute is working on changing!
So how do WWU students rank in those percentages? Journalism students interviewed 13 other WWU students about it.
Much of the Salish Sea Institute’s work in name recognition for the Salish Sea has come to fruition in the form of a Minor at WWU. More information is available here: Salish Sea Studies
