Invasive fish species are stealing of the salmon starving orcas need to survive. Help us restore balance!
Southern resident orcas depend on Chinook salmon runs, but these runs have begun to collapse. A major cause of the collapse is that dams have created the perfect conditions for invasive fish species like walleye, bass, and catfish to thrive – and those voracious invaders are gobbling up young salmon before they reach maturity, while orcas and salmon continue to disappear.
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has proposed removing restrictions on harvesting these invasive species.
WDFW needs our support to save Chinook salmon and southern resident orcas. Take a second to tell them that you’re for removing these non-native salmon predators!
