Free the River, Save the Orcas
The Columbia and Snake rivers of the Pacific Northwest once hosted the world's greatest wild salmon runs, with up to 16 million fish each year. Today, it is the most heavily dammed river system on Earth. In fact, four dams on the lower Snake River are driving all remaining Snake River salmon toward extinction. Southern Resident orcas, which rely on these salmon as their main food source, are starving as a result. Only 80 of these unique marine mammals are left.
Join us in asking the Army Corps of Engineers to remove these dams, giving salmon and orcas a chance to thrive.
