President Obama was elected in 2008 on a platform that included a strong commitment to science-based policy. He has articulated a vision of policy-making where sound science, common-sense economics, and a healthy environment can go hand-in-hand.
Today, the President has a tremendous opportunity to make this vision a reality by applying the best science to protect salmon and grow jobs in the Columbia-Snake Basin. The Obama administration can work with leaders in the Northwest to convene an inclusive, collaborative stakeholder process in the Columbia-Snake Basin that can finally produce a comprehensive, legal plan based on science and economics. Together we can restore wild salmon, create jobs, and protect local communities.
ACT NOW: Please contact President Obama today and urge him to do all he can to safeguard these magnificent creatures and ensure they are around for future generations to admire and cherish.
