The science is clear. Removing the four Lower Snake River dams could bring back million-strong salmon runs, benefitting sport, commercial, and Tribal fishing communities, and helping starving orcas who depend on the salmon.
We can ensure both farming and fishing communities have a prosperous future. A comprehensive investment package, including funding for dam removal, would restore abundant salmon and provide the region with reliable, affordable, clean power. We need more political leadership to move us forward.
We have to tell the federal agencies that their draft plan will be another failure.
More importantly, we have to urge our elected leaders, especially in Congress, to lean in and lead the effort to build a plan that makes the investments we all need to solve this problem together — for salmon, for orcas, and for people.
