(Seattle, WA)  --  Washington state Governor Jay Inslee is giving his approval to a package of bills aimed at protecting critically endangered orcas in the Salish Sea.  Inslee signed five bills into law yesterday securing new protections for the Southern Resident killer whale.  The bills focus on protecting the whales from marine traffic and noise while increasing the safety of oil transportation and increasing the Chinook salmon population, which serves as the whales' main food source.  Researchers say there are only 75 Southern Resident orcas left.
