Backbone Campaign brought props and banners down to BPA HQ in Portland OR, to raise awareness about the salmon and orca extinction vortex and need for immediate, bold recovery actions. BPA's stance on keeping the LSR dams in service is driving extinction.
Shut Down BPA's Extinction Machines
The action was a collaboration between NW Steelheaders Association, Sea Shepherd Portland, Columbia Riverkeeper and Backbone Campaign and was an excellent team effort. Thank you to photographer Erika Wendell for capturing the day.
Pacific Northwest salmon are in hot water this summer. As an epic drought and hot temperatures unfold across the region, the entire mainstem Columbia and Snake River corridor is lethally hot for cold-water salmon and steelhead migrating home to spawn—pushing salmon even closer to the brink of extinction. We must follow the lead of the tribes and breach the LSR dams.
