Take Action Tuesday: Urge the Obama Administration to Protect the Epic Migration Columbia-Snake River Salmon

Thousands of ocean miles.  Over 900 miles inland.  To nearly 7,000 feet in elevation. The migration of the salmon and steelhead of the Columbia and Snake River Basin is truly one-of-a-kind.

The bad news: at 1% of their historic abundance, wild salmon remain on life support. 

The good news: the spawning habitat for these fish is the largest and wildest habitat left in the continental United States and the highest salmon spawning area on earth.

All across the country – from the Penobscot River in Maine to the Elwha and White Salmon Rivers in Washington State – we've seen that when people work together, rivers can be restored, jobs created and new economic opportunities realized. We can do the same on the Columbia and Snake Rivers for salmon and communities in the Pacific Northwest.

Businesses, conservation groups, the State of Oregon, and the Nez Perce Tribe have been in court pushing for a legal and scientifically sound plan to restore Columbia-Snake River salmon and steelhead listed under the Endangered Species Act. This advocacy has been vital for protecting fish, jobs, and rivers. Today, these same groups stand ready to move beyond the years of litigation and work toward a new dialogue among stakeholders that considers all options for restoring salmon and protecting communities.
