Save Our Orcas
Dear Sens. Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray,
Southern Resident orcas are starving. Only 74 remain today, their lowest numbers in 34 years. To save the orcas, we need to save their food source -- the Chinook salmon.
Salmon populations in Puget Sound have dropped by 90 percent since the construction of the Lower Snake River dams. I urge you to support breaching the Lower Snake River dams to restore the salmon that orcas need to survive and thrive.
