Shell has been a part of the Anacortes, WA community since 1955 via the Puget Sound Refinery, and it identified the KWRCP as a key local conservation effort for the region. “We are proud to be a part of this collaborative effort through the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation,” said Shirley Yap, Shell Puget Sound Refinery’s general manager. “We are committed to supporting regional research and conservation efforts that focus on recovering a species that is iconic to the Salish Sea and the cultural heritage of the Pacific Northwest.”
