RBCM@Home (Summer) Salmon Famine

Salmon Famine

From sound pollution to plastics, there are many reasons that make it hard for Orcas to survive in our water. One major threat to the Southern Resident Orcas is the lack of their favourite food – Chinook Salmon. 

During this session, we will create some cardboard Chinook Salmon as we explore ways we can help Orcas by helping our oceans. 

This session will be guided by educator Jenny Arnold.

Materials needed:

  • Cardboard tube (such as recycled toilet rolls or paper towel roll cut down to size)
  • Scissors  
  • Grey and red paint, crayons, or markers (any colour can work)
  • Black marker
  • (Extra) Googly eye and glue  

RBCM @ Home (Summer) is hosted by Chris O'Connor and Jenny Arnold.
