The Columbia basin was once the final destination of some of the best salmon spawning runs in the world. But now that dams choke Washington’s rivers, it’s become extremely difficult for adult salmon to return home to spawn, or for juveniles to complete their journey to the ocean.

The Washington Department of Ecology is proposing to raise water quality standards that will allow for more spill over dams, in light of research that juvenile salmon will directly benefit from the change.

The current plan is for this increase to go into effect over the next few years – but our starving orcas cannot wait that long. The longer we wait, the more orcas we’ll lose.
