While this is a busy time of year, concerns for low salmon numbers in Alaska and British Columbia are growing, and we need your voice!
The AK-B.C. transboundary rivers issue has ongoing support from our elected members of Congress and state lawmakers -- and it is so important that they continue to hear from Alaskans. Please take a few minutes to send their offices an email to give thanks for their continued work to elevate the transboundary issue to the highest levels of government - and to defend our rivers, jobs, and way of life.
The Province of British Columbia continues to permit massive tailings dams to hold back contaminated mining waste at the headwaters of the Taku, Stikine, and Unuk rivers - creating ticking time bombs that could deliver the final knockout blow to our shared wild salmon runs.
We need our Alaska lawmakers to keep the pressure on B.C. and on President Biden to establish binding protections for the rivers that feed +
