Support Salmon Recovery
Help salmon in northern California and southern Oregon by writing a letter below urging the states to implement the recovery plan.
If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you live in Salmon Nation.
Salmon are the icons of the Pacific Northwest. Reared in streams, most salmon travel to the ocean to grow to adulthood and find their way back to spawn in their home waters–completing one of the most incredible life cycles on the planet.
The salmon that once flooded our rivers have dropped off significantly throughout the decades. Some species suffered more than others due to alterations in stream habitat, the introduction of pollution and the installation of dams that block their migration patterns. Coho salmon are one of the groups that have suffered most, and are now listed under the Endangered Species Act.
Perfectly timed with the salmon migration, NOAA Fisheries just released a Recovery Plan for the Southern Oregon/Northern California Coho Salmon, offering a roadmap to recover the species.
Take Action: Help salmon in northern California and southern Oregon by writing a letter urging the states to implement the recovery plan. Please customize your letter and let the Governor's know why coho matter to you.
Would you like to see some salmon? Here is your chance!!!
Returning salmon – largely the coho’s relatives Chinook right now – can be viewed at a number of locations throughout southern Oregon. Join KS Wild on salmon walks to watch these amazing creatures migrate and learn about their lifecycle, struggles and work to protect and restore needed habitat.
