Places We Protect

Puget Sound

Puget Sound is where Washington lives. It is the cultural, economic and natural heart of Washington. Most of its people live, work and play here – with more on the way. And more species of animals and plants live in and around the Sound than anywhere else in the state. 

As more of us are experiencing every day, Puget Sound is slowly dying from toxic runoff, changes in the quality and quantity of fresh water, continued loss of natural shorelines and the effects of rising sea levels.

With your support, we can clean up Puget Sound once and for all, by:

  • Rallying the broader Puget Sound community to reduce toxic runoff.
  • Making conservation good for the bottom lines of farmers, timber managers and shellfish growers as well as the lands and waters they manage.
  • Protecting and restoring our most important rivers and shorelines, and the clean water and habitat they provide, so that they support fisheries, farming and other human needs.

Let's make sure the people of Puget Sound enjoy plenty of clean water, healthy farms providing local food, wildlife in our forests and ample fish in our waters.
