Puget Sound is one of The Nature Conservancy's priority conservation areas in Washington. It's the cultural and economic heart of our state, home to more than 3.6 million people.
The Sound is also one of the most productive places in the region, teeming with activity both under water and on the shores. Our scientists say there is more biological diversity here than anywhere else in Washington, including more than 7,000 species of animals, birds, fish and plants. Impressed? There's more.
We've compiled five fun facts about beautiful Puget Sound, where support from members like you is helping us find ways for people to live in balance with nature.
