Remove the Snake River Dams

Remove the Snake River Dams

In the Pacific Northwest, the line between extinction and existence for wild salmon and steelhead is not a line in the sand. It’s four fish-killing monoliths spanning the Snake River Canyon. It’s time to remove these deadbeat dams and ensure the future of salmon and steelhead.  

Act Now

The iconic salmon and steelhead of the Pacific Northwest are on the brink of extinction. Our best chance at saving these wild fish—and entire ecosystems, cultures and economies that depend on them—is through the removal of the four lower Snake River dams. Their elimination is the lynchpin to restoring Snake River and the larger Columbia River Basin’s salmon and steelhead populations.

Right now, the Council on Environmental Quality is accepting public comments about Columbia River salmon and other native fish restoration. This is our opportunity to help fight for a future of abundant wild salmon and steelhead, justice for tribal communities and clean energy. Submit a comment today.

Witness the Youth Salmon Protectors of Idaho as they work tirelessly to restore and preserve the region's wild salmon and steelhead populations. These highly motivated teenagers are shaping the future of salmon and steelhead conservation through their commitment to climate and tribal justice. Join us on an incredible journey along the Snake River, where the fate of these iconic fish hangs in the balance, reminding us of the vital role youth activism plays in safeguarding our ecosystems and ensuring a sustainable future for all. Youth Salmon Protectors highlights the urgency of environmental action and the indomitable spirit of the next generation. Film directed by Leif Everson.
