More than half of all continental Trumpeter Swans nest, breed, or winter in the Pacific Coast Population (PCP).

In 2010, there were nearly 26,800 Trumpeter swans in the PCP, with 95 per cent in Alaska and five per cent in Western Yukon and Northwestern British Columbia.

Most of these swans winter in Washington and British Columbia.
