Save Our Salmon: Remove Snake River Dams

Thank you www.care2.com for this:

Send a letter to President Bush encouraging him to help restore wild salmon populations.

WHY? Swimming thousands of miles and climbing mountains en route to their natal streams, the epic wild salmon are a wonder of Nature. Now, because of four dams on the Lower Snake River, these Pacific Northwest fish are in danger of extinction and President Bush's policies are keeping salmon in hot water. In fact, this month the Snake River was listed as America's third most endangered river.

Over $3.5 billion has been spent on failed salmon recovery measures -- like trucking salmon around dams -- but biologists agree that removal of the four lower Snake River dams is the best recovery measure for salmon.

This Earth Day, we have a window of opportunity to encourage President Bush to do the right thing -- remove the four lower Snake River dams and save wild salmon from extinction. Take Action TODAY and send a letter to President Bush encouraging him to help restore wild salmon populations.
