Half the profits from this shirt go towards The Center For Whale Research, a non-profit organization that has been researching and monitoring the endangered Southern Resident Orca population for over 40 years. Their population falls lower and lower every year because their main source of food, the Chinook Salmon, is itself endangered. It is becoming even more critical and very urgent to protect these orcas from extinction.
