Siletz, OR 

The Elakha Alliance is a 501(c)3 nonprofit in Oregon formed by tribal, nonprofit, and conservation leaders with a shared belief in a powerful vision: an Oregon coast 50 years from now where future generations co-exist along with a thriving sea otter population and a robust and resilient marine ecosystem.

Sea otters play a vital role in marine ecology, and their re-introduction will create a balanced and thriving coastal environment. Sea otters are often deemed “climate warriors” as they help in sequestering carbon by promoting healthy kelp forests. These forests absorb CO2 thereby reducing its concentration in our atmosphere.

PDW is proud to donate 10% of our Otter Cage profits to the Elakha Alliance.
