New institute at WWU focuses on health of Salish Sea

The Bellingham Herald

As the new Salish Sea Studies Institute gets rolling at Western Washington, Wayne Landis is certain of one thing: It will not be creating studies that collect dust on a library shelf.

“We won’t be doing research just because it’s interesting,” says Landis, a professor of environmental science and director of Western’s Institute for Environmental Toxicology. “We’ll integrate management science and nature with the goal of long-term management of the Salish Sea. We’ll also train students to make this happen.”
