Save Our Orcas
Dear Sens. Cantwell and Murray,
Southern Resident orcas are starving. Only 75 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 support breaching the Lower Snake River dams to restore the salmon that orcas need to survive and thrive. I urge you to lead on this critical step to save our orcas.
