Endangered wild salmon and steelhead in the Columbia-Snake River Basin need healthier, more resilient rivers that connect the ocean and freshwater habitats these iconic fish need to spawn and rear - to survive and thrive. SOS is focused on protecting and restoring the healthier rivers wild salmon need by holding federal and state agencies accountable to our nation's laws and the needs and well-being of our communities.

You can show your support for protecting and restoring Pacific Northwest wild salmon and steelhead - and all the benefits they deliver to our communities, wildlife and ecosystems - by contacting your elected officials and targeted policymakers today.

Take action below. Share links to this page with your networks. Urge your friends and family to contact their elected officials. Pressure on our elected officials - and support when they do the right thing - is critical to protecting our wild salmon and steelhead and restoring the rivers and watersheds they need.

Thank you for contacting your elected officials and targeted policymakers. Please check back here regularly for new and updated actions.

UPDATE ON HR 3144: "The Salmon Extinction Act" passed the House of Representatives in late April 2018. It has been referred to the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, but has not been formally introduced there. Salmon, orca, fishing and river advocates are now organizing to stop this bill from advancing in the Senate and fighting to stop anti-salmon, anti-spill legislative riders from being attached to must-pass spending bills in 2018 in the House and the Senate. You can help by contacting your House members and Senators and asking them to oppose this bill and any/all of its individual provisions from becoming law. If you have questions, please contact us: Thank you for your active support!

(1) Contact your U.S. Senators (National): -- Oppose the Salmon Extinction Act (HR 3144) (May 2018)
(2) Contact Senator Murray and Reps. Adam Smith and Pramila Jayapal (Washington State): -- Thank them for opposing H.R. 3144 - and defending salmon, orca and our communities (May 2018)
(3) Contact Northwest elected officials: Your Governor, U.S. Senators and Member of Congress (Northwest): -- Oppose H.R. 3144: Bad for salmon and steelhead, orca and fishing communities (May 2018)
