This week, we step back from the Southern Resident Orca to discover more about their watery home through the eyes of a mapmaker.

Stefan Freelan is the cartographer from Western Washington University who created the Salish Sea & Surrounding Basin map, aiding a decades-long campaign to bring an official name (and purpose) to an entire ecosystem.

To download a free copy of his beautiful (two-sided!) Salish Sea map, visit Stefan's website here.
