I don’t want it either ! How about you ? #Repost @guardiansofthesalishsea ・・・
Cedar River today. Near Maple Valley Highway (SR 169).
THINK AN ASPHALT PLANT SHOULD GO HERE?
Nope.
Saw a beaver chewed log.. bet the beavers don't want an asphalt plant either. Nor likely all the salmon, or the bears, coyotes, owls, eagles, hawks, deer, or people. That call this beautiful steep river valley home. 🐾🐾🐾

This summer we lost 3 critically endangered Southern Resident Orcas, which feed almost exclusively on Endangered Chinook Salmon. Dams especially on the Snake River have led to the demise of these amazing species. ✊WHEREVER you are, let’s do EVERYTHING in our power to have the 4 Lower Snake River dams BREACHED THIS YEAR to SAVE these magnificent Beings from extinction! ✊Sample letters, full list of contacts, 10 online petitions, and action options here. Please TAKE ACTION via my Origami Whales Project post on FB via link in my IG profile & repost and tag friends ~Thank you!💙 🙌🏽artwork by @valeriegrace_c 🌊🐳💦💙🙏🏽#origamiwhalesproject #16425daysaslave #saveendangeredorcas #savechinooksalmon #j35 #tahlequah #j50 #dogtownandzboys #j50scarlet

Some friends & I were given a tour of this lighthouse by a volunteer at Lime Kiln State Park. After we climbed to the top, he told us the story of when he was in that same spot and saw a pod of orcas right by the shore. They weren’t just swimming by, they were hunting! He witnessed a female orca leave her two calves with another family member, while she foraged for salmon. The mother brought back food for both her calves, and the orca that babysat for her. These animals are so similar to us.
...
Governor Jay Inslee’s Orca Task Force released their recommendations yesterday. Of all the “bold action” recommendations, breaching the dams was not one of them. Breach the dams, bring back their food... because 10 years and millions of dollars worth of “salmon recovery” efforts haven’t worked so far. Keep the pressure on!

Let this wonderful image touch your heart. The southern resident orca's really really keep needing our voices and actions today. There is not enough wild chinook salmon available. This can simply be solved by breaching the useless and outdated lower four snake river dams. Please @govinslee listen to the people, be everyones hero and do the right thing! Thank you.🖤 Check out @swimming_in_moonlight and @pnwprotectors to fall in love with orca's and see how you can help!

Today Governor Jay Inslee's "Orca Recovery Task Force" presented their package of recommendations to his office on strategies to “save” "our" critically ENDANGERED 🐳Southern Resident Orcas💙From extinction. Many of us are disappointed BUT not surprised that the task fArce COMPROMISED = SOLD OUT on what their entire purpose was. No solid plan was proposed to BREACH the 4 lower Snake River Dams to save the Southern Resident Orcas??? IT'S NOT OVER, and the task force recommendations are not written in stone: The Governor has yet to announce which recommendations he will enact. He needs to hear our voices LOUD & CLEAR: These dams MUST be breached this year to save the Endangered Chinook Salmon that “our” last 74 Endangered Southern Resident Orcas need in order to survive (and thrive!).+✊+✊+✊WHEREVER you are, let’s SAVE these magnificent Beings! We must do EVERYTHING in our power to have the 4 Lower Snake River dams BREACHED THIS YEAR to provide necessary spawning grounds for the Endangered Chinook Salmon (primary food source of these Orcas). ✊SAMPLE LETTERS, full list of contacts, 10 online petitions, Tweets, and action options here for 🐳Tokitae/Lolita's family, Tahlequah & all Southern Resident Orcas💙please TAKE ACTION via the link to my Origami Whales Project FB action alert in my IG👆🏽profile. 📹Recorded from VIDEO by @dam_sense 🙏🏽 #damsense

Third grade students at Lakes met Willie Frank, III as part of a “Since Time Immemorial” lesson. He shared how he has met many U.S. presidents and talked about his activist father, Billy Frank Jr. , who fought hard for salmon habitat restoration and Native fishing rights.
Referring to salmon habitat restoration, Piper, 3rd grade, said “I agree with how the fish should be free and we should be helping them out.” @the_olympian_newspaper @thurstontalkwa @lakesleopards #nativeamerican #nisquallytribe #willyfrank #billyfrankjrnisquallynationalwildliferefuge #nativeheritage #nativeamericanheritagemonth #everyonebelongs #salmon #savethesalmon

Salmon have inhabited these Pacific waters for seven million years. Year after year, they swim relentlessly from fresh to salt water and then back to the river where they were first born. In Indigenous cultures, they are the symbol of prosperity, renewal and fertility. They are the life blood of this coast. We can’t be the ones driving this resilient and ancient species to extinction. We must save the salmon to save the orca, to save the entire Salish Sea. 🏞
.
Today, Governor Inslee’s Orca Task Force will present its final recommendations. And so we are standing tall and speaking up for the orca, for the salmon, for the entire Salish Sea. Keep flooding our feed with your recommendations for @govinslee, they are making a difference! You are making a difference. .

We will keep you up to date as we learn more about the task force today. You can follow our coverage on Twitter and Instagram stories! .

‼️Привычки‼️
.
Взял за привычку привозить из тех мест в которых бываю что-то, что будет напоминать о том месте, о тех впечатлениях, которые пришлось получить, и это не банальные магнитики....., а именно частичка того места где я был, обладающее своей энергетикой!
.
А какие у Вас привычки?)

❗️Красота 😍 в увиденном❗️

Выражение "красота - в глазах смотрящего" мне всегда нравилось. Если захочешь, найдёшь красоту и гармонию там, где не найдут, может быть, другие - и порадуешься.

Bringers of Life

Salmon run in Campbell river, BC.
Absolutely beautiful pov by @maxwelhohn and reposted by @tourismvancouverisland
Salmon are the bringers of life. In the sense of reproduction and feeding the rest of the forest post spawn. Everything is connected.

It’s Clean Water Wednesday! Today’s tip: plant trees or join a local restoration project. Trees and native plant species reduces erosion and helps filter pollution from entering waterways that are crucial to salmon and other wildlife. ——
Check out the calendar on our website to find an upcoming restoration project near you!

The government is considering shutting down fisheries for the next salmon cycle in order to #savethesalmon and in turn #savetheorcas. As I believe whole heartedly in upstream thinking and planning for the future I think that 5-7 years of closure vs a lifetime of no salmon is totally worthwhile.

I recognize that my small town is going to be severely impacted by these closures. Commercial, sport and personal fishing will all be closed, this means thousands of jobs lost to multiple industries of which this town relies for its livelihood.
It baffles me completely that the government is so quick to shut down an industry that effects thousands of Canadians and impacts money brought into the Canadian economy but does not for one second consider shutting down or even relocated fish farms to land. Fish farms contain Atlantic salmon from Norway, owned by a Norwegian company in which only a handful of
Canadians are employed and this money is going back to Norway.
The salmon are full of disease: pisine reovirus (PRV), heart and skeletal muscle inflammation (HSMI) and sea lice. These diseases are causing mutations in salmon spines, organ failure and fish being eaten from the outside in. These disease are not only found in the Atlantic salmon, they have now spread to the wild pacific salmon and have even been found in rock fish. These diseases are debilitating the wild salmon and preventing them from reaching maturity or being able to swim up stream to spawn.
No research as been done on the effects of salmon diseases on humans. Will this be a repeat of mad cow? I certainty don’t want to find out.
Each year the numbers of salmon returning to spawn are dropping, this year 50 have returned to Tofino. 50. From past numbers of millions. It’s no wonder the orcas are starving, are expanding their feeding territories and are seeing diminishing numbers.
What can you do? • say no to salmon. Especially farmed salmon. •stop taking fish oil omegas, these often contain farmed salmon. Need a vegan omega? I can hook you up •donate to salmon hatchery projects, there is lack of funding
•share knowledge, together we can vote with our dollars and make a difference

A river needs to be able to flow, we all know that. Dams make the water and everything in it choke. Please learn more about the importance of healthy flowing rivers by checking out a video @patagonia made about the snake river dams. Go to @savethesalmon_ and follow the link in their bio. Get educated and get into action, together we can do this!♡ #breachthesnakeriverdams #freethesnake #healthyrivers #waterislife #savetheorca #savethesalmon #patagonia #pnwprotectors #searchingforchinook #seasheperd #coextinction #extinctionisforever #tahlequahstrong #damnation #weareallrelated #wearetheorca #togetherwerise #environmentalist #getupstandup #govinslee #motherearth #alllifeissacred #weprotectwhatwelove
