After the mother orca Tahlequah carries her dead calf for 17 days, Indigenous leaders and scientists make a desperate attempt to save the last 73 Southern Resident orcas from extinction. Coextinction takes audiences deep into the interconnected web of ecosystem collapse on the frontlines of the Pacific Northwest’s most pressing environmental threats. Fish farms, pipelines, dams, increasing vessel traffic, climate change, pollutants and centuries of injustice against Indigenous peoples are all connected. No species goes extinct in isolation.
