We have never had such a historic opportunity for salmon and orca. U.S. Senator Patty Murray and Gov. Jay Inslee have committed to providing a comprehensive draft plan by mid-May for replacing the services of the dams. Then they will decide if they support the removal of the dams by July 31, 2022. They need our support. This will be the largest wildlife restoration project in the United States today.
