Help SalmonAID educate more people about the wonders of wild Pacific salmon and the perils facing our rivers. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
ADVOCATING CHANGE: SalmonAid motivates citizens as it engages them. Through our "Why Eat Wild Salmon?" campaign, we educate consumers about the health values of wild salmon and the dubious quality of farmed salmon. Our Actions -- letter and e-mail campaigns directed at decision makers -- empower people to express the value they place in wild salmon and wild rivers.
BUILDING A COALITION: By rallying the fishing, tribal, and conservation communities of the Pacific Coast, SalmonAID demonstrates strong, broad-based support for policies that protect and restore healthy and abundant salmon and steelhead populations. Pacific salmon make a clear connection between the health of our environment, our jobs, and the quality of the food we serve to our families. When rivers function as more than canals and waste receptacles, salmon populations thrive; restored rivers and their salmon populations can re-vitalize fishing communities and businesses across the coast and serve as a healthy food source for our families.
Commercial fishermen, conservationists, Native Americans and recreational fishermen don’t always agree, but when these forces unite through SalmonAid, we deliver a strong message to our elected officials: “Restore Rivers, recover wild salmon, rebuild jobs”.
