Video: Protecting Salmon in “LOSTINE”

A new film from Shane Anderson looks at efforts to protect salmon on the Lostine River and the need to remove the Lower Snake River dams that so greatly impact these fish.

From Pacific Rivers:

“Born in Oregon’s largest wilderness of the Wallowa Mountains, the Lostine River is a critically important stream for salmon and communities that depend on it for cultural and economic reasons.

Join us on a short journey to learn about a unique partnership between the Nez Perce Tribe and a local farmer that aims to restore spring Chinook salmon, which once spawned by the thousands in this river. The success of this inspirational partnership hinges on the fate of four federal dams in the lower Snake River.

The mission of Pacific Rivers is to protect and restore the watershed ecosystems of the West to ensure river health, biodiversity and clean water for present and future generations.

We are proud to share the story of the Lostine River and appreciate the work and generosity of the NezPerce Tribe, Woody and Megan Wolfe, and the Water Foundation for making it possible.”
