Salmon and steelhead are at the essence of the Pacific Northwest. Their incredible fish migrations not only inspire awe, but also distribute nutrients that feed forests, wildlife, and people.
Despite being listed as a “threatened” species under the Endangered Species Act 22 years ago, less than 2% of the historic wild Chinook salmon and steelhead in Oregon’s Willamette River remain. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which operate the dams causing most of the harm, continue to deflect and make excuses for their inaction.
We are asking Congress to use their power to direct funding to recovery actions that truly save salmon and a living river. Send your personalized letter today to help save Chinook salmon and steelhead.
