Western salmon states, fishing businesses, conservation groups and Northwest tribes have been in litigation over federal dams and wild salmon protection in the Columbia Basin for almost two decades.

Wind & Salmon Connection
Wild salmon and wind energy work together well in the Northwest, as sustainable resources and job creators. But the Obama administration's present management of our Rivers doesn't reflect this natural partnership. We're working to change that.

A healthy environment means a healthy economy and the threats salmon face threaten us all.
