Salmon is also a key prey species for B.C.’s black bears and grizzlies. They are known to produce more cubs when salmon is plentiful. Bears also depend on healthy freshwater ecosystems to thrive.

Salmon are more than a fish; they are a significant part of many First Nations’ cultural and spiritual identities. Restoring spawning habitats means protecting future generations of salmon that both people and wildlife depend on. Chinook salmon are also the primary prey for Canada’s most endangered whale population, the southern resident killer whale.

The southern resident killer whale population faces imminent threats to its survival and recovery in Canada. The primary threat to this endangered whale is a lack of food, specifically Chinook salmon. WWF-Canada is working with partners to reduce underwater noise and disturbances in their habitat that make it difficult to find food and feed.
