How can we ensure that the Pacific’s great stronghold rivers survive, so that we can deliver them to the next generation? The answer lies in large part with strong community-based organizations. They have the knowledge and authenticity to navigate local politics, and the ability to leverage residents’ passion for their home waters. They are the first and last line of defense.
Wild Salmon Center focuses on supporting local partners on stronghold rivers. WSC has helped create eight organizations and supported dozens more over the years. We provide funding, legal support, communications strategy, scientific expertise—whatever they need. Our job is to help these groups secure a future for salmon.
