Take Action The Snake River once supported millions of salmon and steelhead but now those runs are threatened with extinction. The solution is to remove the four dams on the lower Snake River, invest in infrastructure and renewable energy sources to ensure farmers can still irrigate their crops, and our power is carbon free. It also requires the fundamental restructuring of the Bonneville Power Administration (the federal agency in charge of marketing power from the dams) to eliminate the many conflicts of interests that work to prevent real salmon recovery. Congressman Mike Simpson of Idaho is leading this charge but it requires support from the rest of the Pacific Northwest Congressional delegation.
Please contact Congressman Simpson’s Chief of Staff Lindsay Slater and tell him you support their efforts to restore salmon and reform BPA. 2084 Rayburn HOB, Washington D.C. 20515 (202) 225-5531
