Thursday, March 7, 2024 – A major boost for salmon restoration in the Pacific Northwest

Two recent events are major wins for tribes in Washington State fighting to restore natural salmon runs. A federal judge just sided with the Puyallup Tribe in their lawsuit aiming to remove a dam on the Puyallup River because it harms endangered salmon and other fish. And a coalition of a half-dozen tribes just signed a $1 billion plan with the federal government to restore salmon populations in the Columbia River Basin.
