Thank you, Gov. Inslee, for your bold proposal to Save the Orcas

Dear Governor Inslee,

Thank you for your bold proposal to Save the Orcas. We know that orca recovery will require making difficult decisions and appreciate your willingness to advance some of the critical recommendations made by your Orca Recovery Task Force.

In particular, we appreciate that your plan included advancing critical recommendations to boost hatchery production of chinook salmon, the orcas' primary food source; funding to support evaluation by a task force of breaching the lower Snake River dams; and funding for a rulemaking process to allow increased spill over the Columbia and Lower Snake River dams, among other recommendations.

Thank you for your leadership on this issue. We have your back!
