“Dammed to Extinction” Documentary Screening: Saving Southern Resident Orcas and Pacific Salmon
23 May, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT
The Southern Resident orcas have survived on the Pacific Northwest’s abundant salmon for millennia, but four dams on the Lower Snake River are putting the future of both at risk. Join us to hear more about the effort to bring down these dams and get involved in a National Day of Action on May 24th to save salmon and orcas.
“Dammed to Extinction” – A broad and growing coalition of scientists, economists, and conservation groups, led by Northwest Tribes who have depended on Snake River salmon for millennia, has brought the discussion of these dams to the forefront for Pacific Northwest policymakers. Now is the time for decision: can we achieve the largest salmon restoration action in the history of the U.S. to save our majestic orcas and restore abundant runs of salmon, or will we allow them to be Dammed to Extinction?
