Chilko Sockeye Salmon

 If not now, when? If not us, who?” 

Chilko River and Lake is an important spawning and rearing habitat for Sockeye, Chinook, and Coho Salmon, as well as steelhead, Rainbow, Bulltrout, Dolly Varden, and Rocky Mountain Whitefish. The health of the Chilko is dependent on the keystone species of salmon that spawn and rear here.

Since 1994 the Pacific Salmon have been on a steady decline.  The Pacific Salmon range from Alaska to California. This is not a BC issues, this is a West Coast issue. We cannot afford to lose our wild salmon!

There is one person in BC that is trying to help with the support of many. Alexandra Morton, she has been fighting to save the salmon.  She should get awards for being tenacious, but with all fearless leaders she needs the support of the people who believe that the wild salmon of the Pacific are worth saving.

To learn more about what is happening watch this.


There are five crucial things you can do if this film concerns you:

1 - Write to the man who will most likely be the next leader of British Columbia, Adrian Dix and tell him you take these viruses seriously and he is going to have to remove these feedlots from the wild salmon migration routes.

2 - Sign the petitionabove to the current leader of British Columbia - Christy Clark

3 - Go to join the boycott

4 - Share this film with everyone you know that cares about the future of wild salmon, wild trout, bears, forests, whales, the future of our salmon.

5 - Donate to help me get this film out there and make the changes we need to keep wild salmon alive

We are now essential to the biology of wild salmon. Please take action.
