Struggling southern resident orcas need us to take action right now!
Outdated dams on the lower Snake River have cut off Chinook salmon populations from their spawning routes for years – the same salmon that southern resident orcas depend on to survive.
We’ve watched those orcas suffer and die, unable to find enough food to support their calves or themselves. Now, only 72 southern resident orcas remain.
Scientists estimate that a plan to remove these dams would restore up to 1 million salmon - the most of any project being considered. But that plan faces major resistance from a new federal agency report.
Sign to demand federal agencies save salmon and starving orcas by breaching old dams on the lower Snake River!
