Unless there are changes, endangered Southern Residents orcas face rapid extinction. Orca Network and filmmakers Rick Wood and Shari Macy teamed up to tell the complete story of the perils facing the killer whales and chinook salmon.
The untold story of one of the most endangered marine mammals in the world and those who are working desperately to save them. Coastal Native tribes had a saying, "No fish, no Blackfish," which meant without Chinook salmon, there are no orcas. "Fragile Waters" is the story of connectivity, balance and finding solutions. It is also a call to action, for the Southern Resident Killer Whales are in a perilous and steady decline.Written by
