Orcas Need Salmon.
Critically endangered Southern Resident orcas are doing their part.
It’s time to do ours. We need your help!
We must act quickly. While Southern Resident orcas have welcomed three new calves in the past year, just 75 individual whales survive today. Without enough salmon to eat, however, they are struggling to survive.
Restoring the lower Snake River is our very best opportunity to restore salmon to abundance across the Pacific Northwest region – to help to feed hungry orcas and assist struggling tribal and fishing communities at the same time.
We stand with Northwest tribal leaders, business owners, local communities, clean energy experts and countless citizens: Now is the time for a solution that works for salmon, for orcas, for tribes – for all of us.
Contact Senator Murray and Senator Cantwell today.
Let them know how vital their leadership is before the extinction of these irreplaceable Northwest species becomes our legacy.
We need Senator’s Cantwell and Murray leadership to seize this opportunity in 2021 - to make big investments to restore salmon abundance and protect orcas, strengthen our energy and transportation infrastructure, and sustain more just and prosperous communities across the Northwest.Here are some links to further information about the urgent plight of Snake River salmon and Southern Resident orcas – and opportunity right now for Northwest Congressional delegation to work together on a comprehensive plan that works for salmon, for orcas, for tribes – and for all of us.
