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

There are only 75 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.

And these critically endangered orcas are not the only ones harmed by salmon declines. 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.

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