Killer Whale
Shell is proud to partner with NFWF and other organizations to help protect Southern Resident Killer Whales.

The grants will generate just over $1 million in matching contributions for a total conservation impact of more than $1.78 million.

The grants were awarded through the Killer Whale Research and Conservation Program (KWRCP), a partnership between NFWF, SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc., Shell Oil Company, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and NOAA Fisheries. These investments directly support recommendations in a September draft report from Southern Resident Orca Task Force appointed by Washington Gov. Jay Inslee.
