Witnessing the decline of species and habitat in this time of mass extinction is deeply painful.

In 2001, thanatologist Dr. Kriss Kevorkian gave a name to what many of us are feeling – environmental (and ecological) grief. In our first Sentient Planet guest interview, Kriss talks about her journey from a love of whales to working in death and dying, climate change, and now the Rights of Nature movement.

The inescapable truth is that we humans have created our current crises. How can we return to a right relationship with nature and all sentient life?

Call to Action: If you love orca (and salmon) as much as we do, please support Legal Rights for the Salish Sea by signing Kriss’ Declaration of the Rights of the Southern Resident Orcas here.
