When I co-founded Wild Fish Conservancy over three decades ago, it was our mission to establish a powerful conservation group dedicated solely to the protection and recovery of our wild fish and the habitats they depend on.
At the core of our philosophy was the shared fundamental value that science, not politics, must be the foundation that guides salmon and steelhead recovery coastwide.
Thirty-two years later, I’m proud that this steadfast commitment to science has never wavered and continues to be the compass that guides every aspect of our work.
But it wouldn’t be possible without members like you who share this commitment and have helped to grow this vision into a powerful movement of wild fish advocates, engaging collectively to support and advance responsible and science-based natural resource management.
With this coastwide coalition behind us, we are successfully taking on the most impactful initiatives in our organization’s history.
With your support, we’ll continue to advance solutions to the most entrenched and complex issues facing wild fish today, with coastwide benefits for wild salmon, steelhead, endangered orcas, and coastal communities alike.
I know you share our unwavering commitment to wild fish and science. I hope you will consider making a year-end donation to drive forward these precedent-setting wild fish initiatives in 2022.
On behalf of our entire staff, thank you for your continued support in the new year. We can’t do this work alone and we’re so grateful for your dedication to the future of the northwest’s wild fish heritage and everything it represents.
