Watch this new video by NRDC and Baykeeper to learn more about the need to protect endangered salmon and our precious waterways during the current drought. And then make your voice heard!
Salmon populations are disappearing like never before in California and up and down the West Coast.
Debilitating drought conditions and warming waters fueled by the climate crisis and misguided policies by the Trump administration have pushed these critical creatures to the brink of extinction.
Trump's policies have allowed massive state and federal water projects to increase water withdrawals from Northern California's Bay-Delta Estuary, gutting protections for salmon and other endangered species and threatening water quality, orcas who depend on salmon to survive, thousands of fishing jobs, and drinking water for millions of Californians.
When President Biden took office he vowed to overturn these reckless policies…but his administration has yet to formally do so.
That's why we've joined forces with Baykeeper to get thousands of individuals to send letters to Interior Secretary Deb Haaland asking her to take action.

Roll back Trump’s reckless ("biological opinions") for CA’s Bay-Delta ecosystem.
