Help Rescue Starving 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 a primary food source, are starving as a result. Less than 80 of these unique marine mammals are left.

Tell them it is time remove the four lower Snake River dams to ensure a future in the wild for salmon and orcas.
