Snake River Salmon have been trucked, put on barges, diverted up fish ladders — all in the hope that enough would bypass the four dams standing in their way to reach their historic habitat, and ensure their future existence.. But it’s not working. The time has come to breach the dams and reconnect wild salmon to this important watershed. Learn more:patagonia.com/us/the-new-localism/DamNation

That was beautiful and inspiring. We enjoyed it so much and want to spread the word, so we have featured it as our Film of the Day today on votivearth.com and gave you full credit. Free the Snake!

Wish more people knew about this and cared as much as others do out here in the US. I live in Florida and it makes me sad just as it does with the way the natural flow of water through the swamp land here is disrupted.

God Bless you for sharing!!

Agreed with many of the comments posted and spoken. Activists like these are crucial to our sustainable planet. This was well done to inform people like me that who are not aware of the really simple fixes to a huge problem. The beauty is amazing. FREE THE SNAKE...

Very Beautiful, Patagonia, Please put a focus on the Copper Mine project in Alaska. They keep wanting to put in a Gold Mine, it would Destroy all Salmon Runs from Alaska. That's thousands of jobs all throughout the world that would be lost, not to mention the food source. It is a very tenuous position, due to the corporatization of America, I fear the battle will be lost. I even heard something about the EPA revising their study, or doing another one. The bottom line is, there's more gold there than in any known mine. And people want it, rich people want it. And, like in British Columbia, it's an ongoing battle, they nip away at year by year, until they finally get their way. Here's a link, also, Paul Newman is an Advocate for the Copper River, so he maybe someone you could contact. He did a short spot advocating for keeping the mining company out in 2013 I believe.
