The Tulalip Tribes are a federally recognized Coast Salish Tribe of Snohomish, Snoqualmie, Skagit, Suiattle, Samish, Stillaguamish, and other allied bands living in the region with around 5,100 enrolled members. The Tulalip Reservation, which spans more than 22,000 acres, is located in the mid-Puget Sound area in what is now present-day Washington State.
The Tulalip Tribes have been working on climate change issues since 2010. For example, the Sustainable Lands Strategy recognizes and addresses the vulnerability of salmon species to a changing climate. According to the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit case study, “Tulalip Tribes: Saving Their Sacred Salmon,” one major success was the establishment of active riparian buffers to provide benefits to both fish and farmers.
