Stop Salmon and Orca Extinction

  • May 6, 2022

Four federal dams on the lower Snake River are driving salmon to extinction. Now, climate change is accelerating that extinction by raising river temperatures well above lethal levels, killing salmon and steelhead and leaving orcas without food.

This is a justice issue.

The loss of salmon violates the rights of tribes and Indigenous people who were promised abundant salmon by the United States in treaties and other legally-binding agreements. Together, 60 Northwest tribal governments are calling for federal government leaders to stand by their promises and restore salmon to the Northwest by removing the Snake River dams.

We can stop extinction and lead the largest salmon restoration in history. But it won’t happen without your support.
