Rally to protest the slaughter of cormorants!

This week, Federal Courts confirmed that the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers have failed once again to address the primary cause of salmon decline on the Columbia and Snake River system, which is the operation of the hydroelectric dam system.

Join us to rally and demand that the Corp, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and U.S.D.A.'s Wildlife Services stop scapegoating cormorants to address salmon decline.
Already this year 1,494 cormorants have been killed, adding to the 2,346 adult cormorants and over 5,000 nests that were slaughtered last year. Help us stop the unnecessary slaughter now!
