The following is part one of a five part series on the intertwined fates of salmon in the Columbia and Snake Rivers and southern resident killer whales.
The other night I just happened to catch on the PBS station KCTS the second half of an excellent documentary about the Klamath River, called "River of Renewal". I found the part that I watched to be coherent and insightful, and regret that I missed the first half. Although the Klamath River runs through Oregon/California, the film covers the same issues we face here in Washington as we consider removal of dams in the Snake/Columbia river basin.
Part 2 - Timeline: Salmon, Dams, and Orcas
Part 3 - How Many Fish Do The Orcas Need?
Part 5 - And Baby (Orca) Makes 5!
