Expanded Answer:

Washington currently does not have an official state animal, however the state marine mammal of Washington is the Orca Whale.
The Orca whale, Orcinus orca, is the state marine mammal of Washington. It was adopted in 2005, thanks to the efforts of a group of students from Crescent Harbor Elementary School, whose two-year project on the animal prompted Washington Governor Christine Gregoire to sign a bill making the orca the state’s official marine mammal.
