Sign the Petition Calling for Urgent Changes to Help Save Wild Olympic Peninsula Steelhead


Steelhead of the Olympic Peninsula need your help. Despite some of the most intact habitat in the Pacific Northwest, an explosion in fishing pressure and the highest harvest rates for wild steelhead anywhere in their range have populations in the region on a troubling downward trajectory. It's long past time for the state and tribal co-managers to take a proactive approach to conserving and managing this precious resource. A new petition put together by Shane Anderson, director of Wild Reverence clearly articulates the issues and the steps necessary to ensure the long term viability of Olympic Peninsula steelhead. Please take a few minutes to check out the petition and add your name, the time for change is now and waiting will only allow these populations to slip further into decline.
