Providing clean water and healthy habitat for Chinook, coho, sockeye, chum, and pink salmon, as well as steelhead trout, ooligan, Dungeness crab, and moose, the Stikine River is the heritage, the livelihood, and the future of thousands of Alaskans and British Columbians.
“To try to put a measure on why clean water is so important is hard to do, except that it is what this community is. It is what has allowed us to stay.” -Petersburg resident Karin McCullough
The Stikine is one of the wildest, most salmon-rich rivers on the planet. Several large scale, open-pit mines at the river's headwaters stand to change the Stikine forever. If you want to make sure the Stikine remains healthy, rich, and full of life, write a letter to Alaska's Governor Bill Walker today demanding a Clean Stikine!
