Protect and Restore Puget Sound

Puget Sound is a jewel of the Pacific Northwest, and it needs our continued attention. Pollution, habitat degradation, pressures on water supplies and a changing climate are among some of the greater challenges we face. Ecology is a dedicated to finding and implementing solutions to restore the health of Puget Sound and protect this precious resource for future generations.

We collaborate with many partners to leverage the best available science and research to understand and counter the challenges facing Puget Sound. As we move forward, we are working with local communities to build partnerships and invest in solutions together. Together, we’re working for clean waters and healthy ecosystems, as well as economic prosperity in harmony with responsible environmental leadership.
