With the birth of L124, a new baby calf born to L-Pod in December 2018, the Southern Resident Orcas have one more precious mouth to feed.
After more than 714,000 people from around the world have signed the petition to breach the four lower Snake River dams to save salmon and Southern Resident Orcas, the politicians still say they need to see more public support for dam breaching. Somehow, they’re not getting the message!
Let’s tell them directly that the people want lower Snake River dam breaching by also flooding their offices with messages and phone calls! Please use these message links and phone numbers to reach out to those in power who can make a difference if they choose. So far, they’re not convinced.
We must continue to educate these decision makers that people around the world support immediate Snake River dam breaching to save the Southern Resident orcas.
