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.
