After decades, efforts to remove the Lower Snake River dams and save salmon are finally beginning to gain momentum, but the fight is far from over. The time is now to stand in solidarity with Northwest Tribal leaders, anglers, business owners, and community members to save iconic salmon from extinction. On June 9, Washington Governor Inslee and Senator Murray released a much anticipated draft report: Lower Snake River Dams Benefit Replacement Report. The deadline for public comments on the report is Monday, July 11 at 5 p.m.
This is a big deal! As Pacific Northwest salmon populations continue to decline, we must take bold, swift action to save them. The draft report from Governor Jay Inslee and Senator Patty Murray acknowledges that the best way to save our native salmon populations is to remove the Lower Snake River dams.

This is your opportunity to use your voice on behalf of the salmon and all species that depend on them and send a clear message to Governor Inslee and Senator Murray that you support Lower Snake River dam removal.

Now more than ever, we need to come together to restore our salmon populations, to honor Tribal rights, and to invest in the future of this region. Join us in the fight to stop extinction. Write a comment before July 11, 2022. The time to act is now!

For our salmon,
