Juvenile salmon need our help.
By restoring vital marine habitat, we can help Pacific salmon recover.
Pacific salmon encounter myriad challenges during their unique lifecycles involving seasonal migrations through both freshwater and marine environments. Factors negatively impacting Pacific salmon include: climate change, habitat degradation, land and water pressures, pollution and major events such as the landslide at Big Bar along the Fraser River.
About half of Pacific salmon populations are in some state of decline. But through a shared vision, major funding, communication, and coordinated action, Pacific salmon can recover.
Our Salmon Watersheds Program is actively strengthening the baseline of scientific information available for wild Pacific salmon populations and their habitats.
Our Community Salmon Program supports volunteer and community–driven organizations that undertake salmon conservation and restoration projects.
Our research efforts, conservation initiatives, and commitment to salmon health studies make up our Marine Science program in the Salish Sea.
