Help Honor Commitments to Northwest Tribes , Restore Wild Salmon, and Save Endangered Orcas

Northwest Tribes that depend on healthy salmon populations for their livelihood and well-being should not be forced to shoulder the economic costs and cultural losses due to disappearing salmon runs.

This has never been more true as Native American communities disproportionately suffer the harsh economic disruption and health impacts caused by COVID-19.

Restoring Columbia and Snake River salmon is essential for upholding our promises to the Northwest Tribes.

And the Northwest Tribes are not the only ones harmed by salmon declines: There are only 73 Southern Resident orcas left in the wild, and their population continues to decline due in large part to the decimation of their primary source of food: Chinook salmon.

Tell your members of Congress to help honor commitments to Northwest Tribes who depend on salmon and save endangered orcas.
