The Washington Environmental Council and Braided River partner to launch a free photo exhibit called, We Are Puget Sound at the Tukwila Community Center.

The exhibit, based on a book and campaign launched in 2020, features striking photography and stories from around our region designed to spark urgent action to restore Puget Sound’s health for generations to come. We Are Puget Sound amplifies the voices and ideas behind preserving and protecting Puget Sound.

The photo exhibit, will present 18 striking images from the book We Are Puget Sound: Discovering and Recovering the Salish Sea (Braided River, 2019); a book that features more than 20 regional photographers and showcases the many individuals working to find meaningful solutions to protect the Puget Sound’s waters, wildlife, and the human health and economic prosperity that this region supports. The 13 local photographers featured in the exhibit are Amy Gulick, Art Wolfe, Brandon Cole, Brian Walsh, Drew Collins, Gerrit Vyn, Glenn Nelson, Harley Soltes, Joel Rogers, Leslie Dorn, Natalie Fobes, Rob Casey, and Steve Ringman.  

The Puget Sound region is the lifeblood for urban and rural communities in British Columbia, Washington State, and fifty-plus Tribal Nations and First Nations that rely on economic opportunities, cultural significance, and a high quality of life defined by this rich inland sea. This astonishingly beautiful waterway surrounded by mountains and forests also supports resident and migrating marine life—notably two iconic, interdependent endangered species: Southern Resident orcas and Chinook salmon. 

But Puget Sound’s cherished natural beauty conceals its rapidly deteriorating health after a century and a half of resource extraction, pollution, habitat loss, and impacts from climate change and development. Recovering Puget Sound and the broader Salish Sea, essential for the survival of all the human, plant, and animal communities that rely upon it, requires collaboration, innovation, and a long-term commitment.
