Get Involved, write a letter, send a text, go to a rally, talk to people, organize a screening and most importantly vote for those in favor of saving salmon and orcas.
1. The following organizations are involved in the fight to save orcas and salmon. Visit their websites for more information.
The Center for Whale Research www.whaleresearch.com
Southern Resident Killer Whale, Chinook Salmon Initiative www.srkwcsi.org
Orca Network, www.orcanetwork.org
Save our Wild Salmon www.wildsalmon.org
Dam Sense www.damsense.org
Columbia River Keeper www.columbiariverkeper.org
Earth Justice www.earthjustice.org
2. Speak up and let your representatives know you are in favor of removing the obsolete four lower Snake River dams and only vote accordingly. The only way to move the needle is for elected leaders to hear overwhelming support for dam breaching from their constituents.
