Climate Resilience

How will existing salmon strongholds hold up under a new level of climate pressure? What characteristics of the watersheds and fish populations must be protect­ed, restored, and reinforced to make sure strong wild populations don’t just persist, but thrive? How can our actions on individual stronghold rivers contribute to the global fight to stop climate change?

Maintaining watershed function and healthy wild salmon runs in strongholds, as well as empowering local conservation champions, is essential in the face of climate change.

These resilient strongholds anchor our fight to conserve wild Pacific salmon range wide.
