Take action to help save orcas from starvation

There are four dams along the Lower Snake River that pose a problem for Chinook salmon.

To remove them, we'll need serious action -- and not just in the states where these dams reside. It requires an act of Congress.

That's why we're calling on leaders in Washington state and Washington, D.C., to support the action needed to protect the Southern Resident orcas.

If we act quickly, we can convince our leaders to act this year in Congress to pass legislation that would help the Chinook -- and the orcas -- recover.

Until July 11, Washington's state leaders and leaders in Congress will be accepting comments on a plan to restore the salmon populations in Puget Sound. Send them the message that orcas need our help.
