For centuries, three unique pods of killer whales have thrived off the coast of Washington, spending summers in the interior waters of the Salish Sea, feasting on chinook salmon. For the past 50 years, these orcas’ presence has thrilled and fascinated people–biologists, tourists, and unsuspecting boaters and fishermen. But chinook salmon are in trouble–with less than one percent of their historic abundance in the Pacific Northwest. The beloved local orca whales’ fate has followed the salmon. Dams have been the main culprit behind salmons’ demise. A broad and growing coalition of scientists, economists, conservationists, and citizens say removing the worst fish killing dams is the best chance we have to bring abundant runs of salmon and the orca that rely on them.

The timing of this film – and its urgent call to action – could not be better. Northwest salmon and Southern Resident orcas need our help today. Citizens regionally and nationally are calling for bold leadership and urgent action. Northwest elected officials have begun to step up and advocate for some big changes to restore our salmon, protect our orcas and invest in our communities. Restoring the lower Snake River and its chinook salmon populations by removing its four costly and out-dated dams is our biggest river/salmon restoration opportunity on anywhere on the West Coast.
