Healthy salmon populations deliver irreplaceable benefits to the peoples and places of the Pacific Northwest. Salmon are vital to the cultures and economies of many Northwest tribes and an essential food source for critically endangered Southern Resident orca.
Our ways of life as a region depend upon protecting wild salmon from extinction and restoring resilient populations.
Northwest Artists Against Extinction, in partnership with Save Our wild Salmon Coalition, call upon our state and federal elected officials to create comprehensive solutions for the people, salmon, orcas and ecosystems of the Pacific Northwest.
Restoring a free-flowing lower Snake River, by removing four federal dams, is essential for protecting native Northwest salmon from extinction. This urgent conservation initiative represents one of our nation’s great salmon and river restoration opportunity today.
