Protecting and restoring Puget Sound takes the coordinated effort of hundreds of partners who come together to plan, prioritize, and implement the actions needed to recover and sustain Puget Sound.

The analysis and findings of the 2015 State of the Sound reports are intended to help our partners and decisionmakers better understand the state of our ecosystem, where progress is being made, where challenges remain, and where focused investment is needed. The Report to the Governor and Legislature specifically responds to RCW 90.71.370(3).

This reporting effort focuses on answering the following questions:

  • How is the ecosystem doing?
  • Are we making progress in implementing identified recovery actions? 
  • What have we learned and what are our next steps?
