In recent years, habitat destruction, a dwindling snowpack caused by climate change, and increased demands for water have escalated water shortages in Washington's Yakima River Basin—pushing salmon to the brink of extinction.
Now, a proposed plan offers new hope for this cherished species in a way that meets the needs of salmon and communities.
We only have until Jan. 3 to tell the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation to enact a strong plan to recover salmon of the Yakima River Basin.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from National Wildlife Federation and National Wildlife Federation Action Fund
